Keeping Busy….

During senior year I really started feeling alone. My best friend (who is still my Ace to this day had) graduated and I had no one I could trust at school. I didn’t have much of a social life at this age. I worked, went to school and church. I felt I had to begin to fill my time at school with more activities. I was already on the school step team ( I tried out for cheerleading back in sophomore year but I was told that “we move our body to much”) but I wanted to do more so I joined student council and yearbook committee. There I had associate, I worked the school store so I didn’t have to worry about lunch issue I felt like I was in my happy place . I think this is where I learned that I do best when I consume all of my time being busy! I learned being busy makes me happy! My mind is always going so I never have to deal

with my true feelings. To all my Mama this is not healthy!But through the years I have learned that it is ok for me to fill my time with things that are worth while and make me happy. Because staying engaged with different organizations truly makes me happy, it’s my comfort! Mama fill your time with things that make you happy ! Not with things that just keep you busy ! Find balance in your day and be aware of the things you have todo and things you want to do (there is a big difference)!

    My A 1 since Day 1! When you stay busy it is not willie nillie, you get things done! Great advice, balance is key! Even as Mamas there is enough space for the things we have to do and the things we want to do. Both are important and contribute to feeling accomplished and happy.
