Everyone is busy. No one person is more busy than the other, we just choose to be busy with different things. If you are "too busy" to do something it just means that it isn't your priority. I heard someone say this today and it made sense. It made sense in that slap across the face, lightbulb, OMG I'm a loser, kind of way.
I've been very busy lately. Too busy. I need to figure out how to be less busy. I haven't been able to get my book club reading done because I've been so busy. I forgot to go to the library last week for my library hour. I have a stack of camp forms that need to be filled out. I have checks from a month ago that I haven't deposited. I have been planning to clean my car - forever. I completely spaced my kindergarten "helping parent" time last Wednesday. I have a "To Do" list a mile long and my house is in complete disarray.
Well, have I been too busy? Or have I just not made these things a priority?
I'm not this irresponsible flaky person that I have become. This is an overwhelming feeling. It can't possibly be acceptable that so many things are not a priority. It's all a priority, isn't it? Shouldn't it be?
How will I prioritize so many things? Where do I start? I have no idea.
Obviously, my kids and family should be first.... that pretty much covers all the stuff I need to prioritize. OYE VEY!
How do you set your priorities?
