Weekend Thoughts: Goodbye to Busy
I love the the articles that the ladies over at Braid Creative post. They contain so much good advice for small business owners and creatives. Recently I also started following And Kathleen (the personal blog of one of the Braid Creative owners.) I love her post entitled I'm Not Crazy Busy. It really speaks to me on a lot of levels. I've been crazy busy at least since I started college, constantly moving from one thing to the next, but "busy" never seems like a good response to give people, especially when that "busy" can contain so many neat and exciting things.
Working on developing this blog, planning weddings, adventuring with Michael, taking care of our apartment, and hanging out with friends are huge parts of what makes me so busy, and those are all wonderful things. I have been constantly finding ways to be more productive, which is encouraging, and I am working towards living my dreams. Right now I am laying the foundations, and that is awesome, but I want to someday 100% own the phrase "wildly productive and living the dream" instead of "crazy busy."
How about you? Are you really busy or are you living the dream (maybe both)?

P.S. If you need a smile and a laugh you should watch this little boy's conversation with himself on the toilet. It definitely started my weekend off with a smile!
