Someone (I can't remember who) shared this blog post on facebook awhile back (can't quite remember when) but what I do know is that it has stuck with me.
Truly. We are ALL busy people and more often than not we choose different things to busy ourselves with and then it is like comparing apples and oranges of busyness.
It's just like once you make the effort to accept that everyone is struggling with something at some level, it makes you look at the world differently.
So, I am going to (seriously) attempt to eradicate the word "busy" from my vocabulary. I think it is something that is understood. When asks me how I am, I am not going to reply with "busy."
