Define "Busy"

Define Busy:

 These fireworks have a lot going on, all at the same time.  
For entertainment value, that probably draws more attention and attracts a larger share of the market.
For life situations, it sounds like stress.

 “Busy” is when...
you cease to live a life that is proactive and intentional, 
and begin living one where life happens to you. 
Your behavior becomes reactionary, 
your life lacks fulfillment and eventually, even lacks basic maintenance.

Do you run your life or does your life run you? 
In the heat of the busy schedule, we must take time, carve time, schedule time or even steal time to ensure we take mental, physical and psychological care of ourselves, before we can serve others to the best of our ability.

Airplanes and Mt Everest
For instance, the stewardess on the plane instructs us to put on our own breathing mask before we try to take care of those others around us.  Sagas from mountaineering condone leadership that puts personal care as a high priority when determining the good of the group. 

All these expressions, quips and cute little quotes remind me that our life is ours and sometimes we have to say no to the good so we can say "yes" to the great.  We must balance the important, vital, urgent and necessary.

Myself included.

Are you living without margins in your life?  Please take care, prioritize and put margins in your life, at all costs.
