I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had a chance to post on my beloved blog for the last two months.
Excuses. Excuses. Busy. Busy. Busy. The truth? I kept procrastinating. I told myself I was “Busy,” but I knew there was more going on that I wasn’t admitting to myself.
And so, I wrote an article, which was published in this past week’s Binah Magazine and the title of the article is “Busy No More.”
This Sunday is Purim when many of us get so busy preparing food packages for our myriad friends and acquaintances, cooking the food for the holiday, and dressing the kids up in the sharpest costumes ever.
Do we miss the points of the holiday (joy, gratitude, friendship) with all our busy-ness?
Can we just relax and live in the moment? Can we be present in the here and now and not worry about all the things we have to do in the future?
Since writing the piece, I’ve been trying to live my life without talking about the B word. (not breathing – that’s a good B word). It’s a process for me, one minute, hour, day at a time.
I’m curious to know what my readers and followers (who are no doubt just as B as I am) think about this idea of “Busy No More.” Let me know in the comment section below.
And now, I can return those phone calls I let go to voice mail because I was too Busy, I mean Focused on composing this post.
Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to Breathe!
