Beware the barrenness of a busy life. – Socrates
I’ve been hiding behind the excuse of being too busy for too long.
Too busy to text. Too busy to call. Too busy to get together. Too busy to work out. To busy to sit. Too busy to sleep.
We all have packed lives. So now I want to tell myself: get over it. Your days may be packed, but are they full?
I don’t want school to just be a phase in my life that I have to “get through” before I can resume life as usual. School is important, sure; it’s helping me reach my goals. But I don’t want the other important people and things in my life to hear that school is more important than them. And by overusing the words “too busy,” that’s exactly what I fear is my message.
