Feng Shui Friday — Becoming Unbusy

To me Feng Shui is just about peace and simplicity. Right now my house is not very Feng Shui and if you are here for inspiring photos of beautifully organized spaces, you will not find it here. Today at least. As I juggle the myriad of activities in my life, the house has trickled to the bottom of the priority list and for now, that is just the way it is.

Today Feng Shui is about peace and simplicity in my LIFE (not just my space), so I was inspired by this article : A Helpful Guide to Becoming Unbusy, by Becoming Minimalist.

“‘Busy’ has become the new ‘Fine’.” As in, when you ask somebody how they were doing, they used to answer, “Fine.” But nowadays, everybody answers, “Busy.”
— Jeff Shinabarger, A Story of More or Less

From this video. Watch it. Food for thought.

And this:

Stop the glorification of busy. Busy, in and of itself, is not a badge of honor. In fact, directed at the wrong pursuits, it is actually a limiting factor to our full potential. It is okay to not be busy. Repeat this with me: It is okay to not be busy.
— Becoming Minimalist

Today my mission is to focus on the good things in life. Relationships, love, joy... and let go of the fake ideal of all the things I think I need to accomplish. I'd like to spend my time wisely.

Happy Friday!
