A few months ago, I read a bunch of Yahoo posts (yes, I get lots of news this way) about how people are all busy and we need to suck it up and stop bragging about it.
I think back to those a lot when people ask how I am doing:
“How are you doing?”
“Busy.” But what does that tell anyone? Everyone is busy. Everyone feels like they don’t have enough time.
“How are you really doing?”
“Well, I’m working to eradicate busy from my vocabulary and instead, say something meaningful.” It is so hard because busy is the first word we could all use to describe our day – but are we really any busier than the next person? Telling people how we are really doing is so much harder!
Part of that also means looking on the brighter side of things and focusing on the fun and wonderful things. Enjoying the little prettinesses around me. I tried the #100happydays thing and honestly didn’t get 100 in a row, but I am still finding little surprises to brighten my day. Here are a few from Instagram this week.
