The exhausting everydayathon

I’ve been busy this week.

Of course, I’m not the only one who is too busy. Most people today are too busy, writes Brigid Schulte in the March 14, 2014, issue of The Washington Post. Schulte is the author of Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time.

“Somewhere around the end of the 20th century, busyness became not just a way of life but a badge of honor,” she concludes. “And life, sociologists say, became an exhausting everytdayathon. People now tell pollsters that they’re too busy to register to vote, too busy to date, to make friends outside the office, to take a vacation, to sleep, to have sex.”

I am going to stop all of my busy activities and do nothing for a while.

In our book The Resolute Woman, Fayteen and I write about the difference between a Superwoman and a Resolute Woman. If you are a Resolute Woman, you have goals and work toward achieving them. You maintain balance in your life. You make time to be quiet and still.
