First post of 2022

It’s Saturday. I’m working on this blog post NOW. Yeah, I know. It’s late.


Ideas: Not the issue. I had some ideas. I have an ongoing list so as to never run out of content. But, even with a rough draft sitting on my desk top from the week I didn’t have that “holy crap! I better get this done” feeling.
Writer’s block: No. I don’t believe in writer’s block. I didn’t have writer’s block. Like I said, I even had some rough drafts ready to go.
Pressing business: I didn’t have super pressing things to do.
Social life: Some, but nothing excessive.

What’s busy good for any how?

I think motivation, laziness, desire and drive are all kind of the same and a wee bit different. Initially this post was about being lazy. But, that wasn’t the case. I didn’t have a lazy weekend. I had a selective weekend. I also think that where we put our energy helps create happiness and fun.

We tend to glorify busy which is not a good thing. Doing is important but balance is also important. However, I have had crazy busy times in my life which always fell next to quiet peace. And this weekend I just wasn’t having hectic. I was having moderation.
Too much.

I know I like being busy—without glorification. I like the stimulation. I like getting things done and I find pleasure in a lot of tasks I put in front of me. It’s part of who I am. But I am very aware of how much pleasure the things I choose give me.

A very brilliant friend reflected on her life. She said she was spending so much time as a mom and wife trying to keep everything in her life organized, to reduce stress, but that also reduced the fun. Whoa. You guys in the back row, read that again. Somewhere in day to day living and in the list of have to’s we need to fit in the fun. It’s why we’re here to have a good life, not just to get shit done.

So…Have a gorgeous weekend!
