forget the glorification of busy

It's time we stop sprinting to the end-of-year finish line.  After all, it's the most wonderful time of the year, and I plan on enjoying it and embracing everything that comes with it.  

I'm sharing this post again, to remind myself and to remind you to slow down and enjoy more x 

Somewhere along the way we learned that being busy equated to being successful, being worthy, being good, or being important.  I don't know where it came from, or why we often feel the need to answer "how was your day?", "how are you?", "how was work?" or even "how was your holiday?" with the one standard reply "busy!".
What gives?

Whilst I choose not to use the word 'busy', just like you, my friend, my life is full. Between being a Mumma to my precious girls, a wife, a business owner, and everything else in between, I'm bit fed up with feeling overwhelmed, and while I am so grateful for everything that my life is and has, I've been on a quest all year to find ways to simplify my life and the life of my family.  Here are some of the things I've learned (and am learning) along the way...
