I hear this all the time. And I probably say it as much as I hear it.
The truth is, life IS busy. There IS a lot to do.
But it's all too easy for me to get caught up in the busy-ness of life and forget to take a few minutes to just sit back and relax. To walk outside and take a deep breath, and remember what life is really all about.
I've found that my to-do list is filled with a lot of things that don't really matter. And no matter how many things I check off, it still feels like I am really doing...nothing.
So this is a challenge to myself -- to enjoy the little things. To try to be as productive as possible, but never get too caught up with my to-do list.
