It’s OK to Be Busy

” Sorry I can’t. Im doing yoga, blogging, working, cooking, finding passions.”

Talking about something that has been on my mind and heart for awhile. I have run into so many friends over the past few months, instantly feeling the guilt rising as I know we haven’t spent any time together for far too long. I haven’t reached out to make time to ask about their lives, to catch up, hang out.

It bothered me as I slowly felt my pool of friends that I used to spend time with on the daily dwindle into oblivion, and you know what? It’s ok.

Positively speaking, It’s ok to be busy. It’s ok to not explain to anyone what you’ve been up to.  I finally decided that to make the necessary progress in my life, I needed a change and redirection of focus.

Personally I needed to create that space for growth. I needed to choose to do yoga, start a blog, journal, self-develop, plan dreams and make changes..

I realized that happy hours and friday nights out are not in alignment with the plans and dreams I am working to achieve. The social pressures to be involved, spend money, drink, eat, socialize are all there to fill blank spaces. To fuel the ego and not the soul.

I decided that being busy was something I wasn’t guilty of anymore, but actually satisfied with myself for making stronger choices to invest in change and put my present moments towards something that would help me in my future.

Balance is key. I have worked to find good people that I can do the things I love with, like surfing and yoga. I encourage all the people in my life to stay focused and keep working to make your dreams happen. Friends that support personal growth and working to strength their mind+body+soul.

  1. I love this message. I’ve been trying to find like-minded people to do the things I love to do with them, and if I’m constantly spending my time out of obligation, and out of alignment, I won’t find those like-minded people! Thank you xx

  2. I love this. I’ve felt guilty about not seeing friends much lately, but I don’t want to put aside things I value, feeling an obligation to drink or be ‘fun’… even if it makes me seem way too old for my age lol. I hope I find more like-minded friends, even though I love the ones I do have. Thanks for this.

    1. Right!? Seriously I had to put it out there that it is totally okay to be completely in your lane and focused on yourself. You don’t owe anyone time or have to make plans ever. Being focused does not make you old hearted or boring.
