“Everyone is sooooo busy!”

Is this something you are hearing or saying a lot?

I had 35 people respond to me in this way over the last two weeks, when I asked how they were? If they did not say they were very busy, they said they were very tired.

I decided at the beginning of the year that I was no longer going to use the B word. Over the months I have come up with some great responses that I feel are a lot more positive and empowering. I am not going to go into why everyone is too B, I think you know the answer to that. And people are far too B to read long blogs so here goes!

When someone says to you they are B, if you are curious ask them “Good B? or bad B?”. Some people love being B, it is part of their make up and it helps them to thrive. I have found most people say it is bad B!!

I then respond saying “What about responding with my life is productive?”.

Why don’t you give it a go yourself? Trust me you will feel better for it.

Anyone who knows me and has asked me this year how I am doing, will know my response:

“My life is full and rich.”

This has become my mantra. Sometimes I am faking it to I make it – however it is mostly true. My life is incredible, full and rich and I feel very grateful.

Your task for this week is to come up with a phrase to say instead of “I am busy!”
When you stop saying B and replace it with something better you will feel different, I promise. Give it a whirl and let me know how you feel.

Phew I did it, I said what I wanted to say and now I am forcing myself to STOP!
Have a fantastic week,
