Busy or Lazy?


This is an easy one. I am too lazy. Not lazy, really, just involved in things I like to do rather than doing things I should do, like chores, etc. Quite frankly, I don’t know of anyone who has actually achieved balance. For example, my daughter is too busy with things that she feels are important. She would never be considered lazy. My sister, too, is busy with so many things. I simply choose to do things I like to do instead of things I probably should be doing. I feel guilty sometimes, but not enough to change. I just spent so many years of being so busy I couldn’t see straight that I do what I want now and not what I should.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

  1. I’ve spent my entire life being the ‘someone’ to other someone’s. I was my parents daughter, my husbands’ wife, my children’s mother, someone’s employer, an others friend. I’ve been so busy being what everyone wanted me to be, doing what they thought it best I do, fulfilling responsibilities assigned to me, that more times than not I didn’t know whether I was coming or going, and couldn’t remember what it was that I’d felt or wanted before they told me what I should. (I know you’re nodding your head right now.) I don’t consider it being lazy as much as finally just doing what you damn well please. And honestly, aren’t we finally entitled?
