A few posts ago, I talked about creating a 100% Yes list and an Absolute No list. I’ve decided to add the word “busy” (in reference to describing my life) to my Absolute No list. I will not be using that word to describe my life any longer.
In today’s society, some people almost wear the title “busy” like a badge of honor~although in most cases, I don’t believe it probaably makes them feel good. For me, it has mostly negative connotations~when I say I’m busy, it usually means I have so much going on, I am most likely feeling a bit overwhelmed and spread thin. This word and the thoughts associated with it, zaps my energy completely.
So, although I am starting a new school year with a brand new class of 600 sophomore students (300 of which are on my case-load), teaching yoga classes, holding yoga playshops, and instructing a graduate class at a local college, I will only be referring to my life this year as Full & Fabulous (and sparkling, of course). This is the truth, and it fills me up when I say or think about it.
Little shifts in thought and speech can make such a big impact. Any words or thoughts need to be added to your Absolute No list?
Feeling a little busy? Embrace your Full & Fabulous life~and make sure to create the time for some extreme Self-Care!
