Now, put your hand up if you’re feeling busy at the moment. It feels like every person I meet, I ask them how they are and they say “I’m busy”. When I ask people what they’re busy doing, a lot of them express to me they are not actually happy with what they’re doing.
A friend recently shared with me she doesn’t use the word “busy” anymore, she started using the words “positively occupied”. I decided that I was going to start using those words as well. Since I’ve been using the words “positively occupied”, when someone asks me how I am, what has happened is extremely interesting.
Does it conjure up a negative perspective in your head when someone uses the word “busy”? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
