I am busy

Sometimes you see me running around like a headless chicken, because I’m busy doing ALL the things.

Sometimes being busy keeps me from thinking about things I don’t want to think about.
Sometimes being busy keeps me from doing things I don’t really want to do.
Sometimes I feel guilty for being busy, doing things that don’t even bring me joy.
Sometimes you’ll hear me say, “sorry, I can’t make it” because I’m busy.
Sometimes I’m not even busy, I’m just really anxious and tired, so I make out that I’m busy because I need a break.
Sometimes I need to stop myself and force myself to take a breath and be present.
Sometimes people remind me to slow down, and at times, I hear them and do that.
Sometimes I hide behind my “busy” facade, because it keeps me safe.
You feel sad for me, because you know I’m too busy.
You stop asking, because you think I’m too busy.
You feel disconnected from me, because I’m too busy.
Sometimes I give too much, because I’ve actually been too busy, and I’m literally exhausted.
Sometimes we are so busy being busy that we forget what’s important in life.
He aha te mea nui o te ao?
He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata!
What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people, it is people, it is people!
You can choose to stop being busy, make time for the people that are important to, and be present.
