I like being busy.
Well, that's not quite true.
I like the feeling of importance that can come with being busy. I like accomplishing things. I like meeting goals and seeing good results from my work.
That's why things like sitting outside just to be outside, letting myself take a nap, simply cuddling with my little sisters on the couch, and other "non-productive" things can sometimes be hard for me to do. I want to always be doing something.
But lately, I've been learning that I need those times of quiet rest. I'm not advocating for laziness or procrastination, but I need to remember that it's okay to put away my homework and computer and allow myself to rest.
