Unword 2014: Busy

busy no more

The blog’s been pretty quiet so far this year…and that’s mostly been on purpose.  I’ve done a lot of thinking this month about my word for the year and also my unword.  It is so easy to fill up our minutes, our days, our moments with stuff…to clutter our lives with activities and commitments that don’t count for much.  I do not want to be busy.  I want to be purposeful, to spend my moments wisely and in ways that have eternal significance.  So this year I’m choosing to not be busy.  To say no when needed.  To count the cost before I answer and/or commit.  To slow down and enjoy the journey, moment by moment.

What’s your unword?  Linking up with The Nester.
