How Busy Am I?

How Busy Am I?

Why am I so busy?

Being a divorced mother with an empty nest, one would think that I have all the disposable time in the world. In reality, I pick and chose my own “busy” as to what is most important to my needs and priorities.

I resent time hogging tasks such as: laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning (all facets thereof), home maintenance. These are not easily dispensed with and necessities of everyday living.

The “busy” that identifies who I really am in defining the Order of my Universe is:

  • First and foremost – a Mother. It matters not that my daughters are 30 and 27. When they need me, I am there.
  • A Grandmother. I love and cherish the special bonds that I have with my grands. They love me, and I them. I gladly take care of them when both their parents are working. It’s a choice – yes – a choice out of love and fulfills a need that is central to my very being.
  • A Grandmother to a Big Blonde Boy – a beautiful Golden Retreiver. I have learned from him with his gentle nature and unconditional love.
  • A Board of Directors member for my development/community. Donating time and expertise as a member of a team for the community I live in and enjoy.
  • An Administrative Professional by day. My motto is “I can make Management Shine.” I positively enjoy my work.
  • Freelance work from time to time. Some pro bono – some not.
  • Attend school.  Currently is on a break from attending school parttime, but would like to resume that. In an of itself, that requires a huge allotment of time, but the lessons learned reaps bountiful rewards.

We make our own busy – even though some of the “busy” is clearly disposable. The time we fill with our “busy” (mundane and elective) identifies the essence of our very core, and aligns with our happiness.
