wednesday words: so busy

October 15, 2014

so busy

Saw this on Instagram and is so resonated; what’s with the “so busy” response all the time? I’m guilty. Yeah, sure, I’m insanely busy and it’s crazier than usual but wow, I have a million better ways I could probably answer this question… including all of the ones mentioned above! #someonepourmeaglass

Going to make it a personal mission NOT to say “so busy” in response to the “how are you?” question and see how it goes. I could mention work, my kiddies, cool blog chat, an upcoming volunteer event, anything. Any other answer, even needing wine STAT, likely will create a much more fun and engaging dialogue with the person asking, too. What do you say… want to join me in the banning the “so busy” talk?

    Saw this same Instagram last night and instantly felt convicted - I’ve been saying this all week and, even though it’s true, it’s probably a really annoying response! Going to work on it myself! :)

    Oddly enough, no matter what is going on in my life, how busy, not busy, interesting or boring, I find myself saying that I’m not doing much. I’m running my blog, I’m in a great relationship, I’m going to be on national television next week, but I always just say “I’m not doing much.”

    LOVE this! I mean, we are all busy, but in the scheme of things we are also all SO lucky!

    I think you posted about this automatic response a while back and it stuck with me. I’ve been trying really hard not to say the “B” word ever since! :) My current auto-response is: “Counting down!” But “Need wine.” will soon be replacing it, I think! haha!

    I certainly would prefer to hear “Can’t Complain!” I’m so busy is SO out of style! ;-) I’m glad that I’m not the only one who is over that response.
