I met someone tonight who reminded me how much I'm not a busy person. It seems some people are constantly busy, running from work to hobbies to volunteering to socialising. That's just not me. I'm definitely a slow living gal. I took 10 weeks off work before each baby was born and a year off after. We don't do any activities, I go to the gym twice a week and socialise maybe once or twice a week, and apart from that I don't really have any commitments. On the weekends we sort of just potter. We're always out and doing stuff, but we don't really have appointments.
It seems these days everyone is competing to be the busiest, and I just don't get it. I'm not talking about people who are busy of necessity, but people who always put their hand up for everything. They seem to wear it as a badge of honour that they're always so busy. Just not for me I guess.
Are you a busy person? Do you thrive on it, or is it because you feel compelled to take everything on?
