Is your life busy?
Or is it full?
“Busy” is word that I believe many use as a badge of honor. The busier one is, the more important he/she seems.
“Busy” also can be used as an excuse or a reason to do or not to do certain things.
“I’m too busy. I don’t have time for that.”
We each have a choice in how we live our lives. We choose our schedule. If we choose not to be “busy,” we won’t be.
I’ve chosen instead to use the word “full.”
“I have a full life.”
Dictionary.com defines busy as: full of or characterized by activity: a busy life.
It defines full as: abundant, well supplied, completely filled, filled to almost capacity.
“Full” better describes my life, and puts a much more positive spin on things!
Driving home the other day, I was tired after a long and active day. Thoughts filled my mind of all the things I was able to do and take in throughout the hours. I began to thank God for each one. I thanked Him for my full (my abundant, well supplied, completely filled) life. I thanked Him for allowing me to experience so much in one day.
As I did so, my attitude began to change from exhaustion to thankfulness. From tired to satisfied. From weary to embracing my purpose. From feeling empty to having more to give.
What a difference one word can make!
Maybe the next time you catch yourself voicing, “I’m so busy,” the better words might be, “I have a full life.”
Blessings on this “full” day! Enjoy!
