Please don't think of me as "busy"

"Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time like dew on the tip of a leaf"

~ Rabindranath Tagore 

I try to fit as many meaningful moments into my 168 hour week as I can. It is my preference to teeter right on the edge of overwhelm. 

That being said, I'd much rather schedule several quality hours with someone than have them intermittently interrupt my creative process at their leisure.

As a rule of thumb, I don't build any white space into my schedule. I do build ample time for self care, creative projects and existing commitments. 

Oftentimes it is the people closest to us (family members, roommates, neighbors, office friends) who tend to breach our productivity. 

 It can be difficult for creative minds like ours to set boundaries around time because we don't want to hurt other peoples feelings.

What I have learned to do, with a lot of practice, is transition as quickly as possible between the interruption and the continuation of my day.

An affirmation, a few deep cleansing breaths or 5 minute meditation are ideal ways to break my negative thought patterns so they can no longer hijack the remainder of my day or worse yet lead me down the path of shame or guilt. 

Here are some positive thoughts from the late Louise Hay that may help you the next time someone interrupts your perfectly scheduled day:

"All is well in my world."

"I am enthusiastic about life and filled with energy."

"I now create a life I love to look at." 

"Harmony surrounds me." 

"I only create peaceful experiences because I love myself." 

"I joyously run forward to greet life's wonderful experiences." 

"I move with ease through time and space. Only love surrounds me."

Until next time,
