"Hey!! How are you?"
Egh...That old chestnut.
When I ask someone how they are and they say "busy, busy" I sigh on the inside ....
A. We're all "busy". We're all doing all of the doing.
B. I'm interested in whether or not you're happy or sad or feeling accomplished, how your kids are feeling at school, if your heart is full or broken...
As a human, when I ask you how YOU ARE, what I mean is how the f*#k ARE YOU?? YOU, the person, you with a life and feelings. I don't care about your "busy-ness".
C. It's actually more impressive to hear "I'm investing in myself and going to have a quiet weekend with a book / at the beach / at NOT BEING BUSY"
BECAUSE BUSY ISN'T COOL ANYMORE. AND IT MAKES YOU SOUND LIKE A BIT OF A D*CKHEAD.
I UNSUBSCRIBE from the culture of BUSY-NESS.
We all have so much on, we can choose to define our state of being as "busy" or we can replace that overused, tired and pretentious word with "grateful", "getting sh*t done", "expanding" or whatever it is.
But when someone asks how you are and you say "busy"....
Really? Is that your best answer? Get creative.
Stop being BUSY, and start BEING.
Be amazing. Be happy. Be connected. Be YOU.
