For many years, I have lived life in a constant state of busyness. The excuse I’ve given friends and family, when I don’t return calls or emails in a timely fashion is that “I’ve just been so busy!” But when I heard someone dear to me start off a conversation by saying, “I know you’re busy,…” I realized that my busyness had begun to define me.

I boldly say, “No more!”
