The busy week must have caught up with me this morning, so I turned off the alarm and slept until 10am. Then by the time I had fed the animals, done some yoga and checked my emails, it was off to pick up the kids from Aratula. I love it when the kids come home, my cottage is complete.
Sometimes, you need to stop and smell the roses
A 360-days musing......
I don’t understand why it is seen as a badge of honour to be perpetually busy. I am always amazed by the number of people who respond to the question, “how are you” with a martyred sigh and the response of “busy”.
As someone who is self-employed and who works from home, I could work 7 days a week, 16 hours a day. But I am training myself to work a little smarter, be a little more efficient and to give myself more time to focus on the things I love. I don’t want to be busy for the rest of my life, I could not think of anything worse.
I want to luxuriate in the beauty of doing absolutely nothing. I rarely go anywhere without my camera. Now when I have a drive ahead of me, I allow some extra time to be able to stop along the way. After all, what is a journey unless you stop and smell the roses along the way?
