Are you busy? (Speak your mind)
Most people today claim to be extremely busy. But I wonder if they are really any busier than people who lived at other times. Maybe most people generally regard themselves as being busy even if they are not. No one wants to admit to idleness or laziness, not even to himself. It may also be that people are aware that there are so many possibilities of things to do that they feel compelled to do them all.
What keeps you busy?
- My job
- Family concerns
- Cultivating relationships with others
- My kids
- Efforts to improve the quality of my life
- I just pretend to be busy.
a. On weekends, there always seems to be some sort of family obligation I have to attend. Someone is always having a birthday or anniversary or graduation or a wedding or other kind of family reunion. If nothing is scheduled and I think I will have some free time, it always seems like a family emergency occurs, so I never have time for myself.
b. Children are not only expensive but time-consuming as well! Every day I have to make sure they doing their homework. They participate in sports and other activities that I have to attend, too. But even without these obvious instances, they always need my personal love and attention on display. It wears me out!
Speak/Write Your Mind:
- Who is the busiest in your family?
- Do you have enough time to do what you want? Why or why?
- How do you spend your free time?
I always try to maintain a healthy work - life balance by setting priorities. I still have time to watch the movies I like in the evening, help my mom wash the dishes, hang out with friends on the weekends (not always). Of course, I am not a master of time management, so sometimes my life is just messed up. But I still try to fix it. But I think it can be better in the future
