Busy or Flourishing?

Recall the last time you ran into a friend in the supermarket aisle who didn’t tell you she’d been busy?

I know—it was the time you met the friend who’s been sick for a month—because she’s been too busy!

How does the concept of “busy” align with your flourishing life?

If flourishing is being “fruitful and productive over many years” and busy is being “occupied with a great deal to do” where do the two intersect?

Or do they?

It seems to me that busy indicates excessive activity leading into a spin cycle. Flourishing speaks of being rooted by a well-watered spring where generous nourishment is readily available so a crop can flourish for harvesting.

Now suppose you’re asked how you’ve been lately. What would need to change in your life so you could enthusiastically answer, “Flourishing!”

Standing Firm for Your Flourishing Life!

About Your Flourishing Life

As a child, Marlee Huber loved to ramble through gardens sampling juicy berries and delighting in the heady fragrance of roses. As an adult, she thrills at maintaining a country garden in the foothills of the Washington Cascades. Something happened in 2012 that changed everything for Marlee. She followed the love of her life as he bicycled across the continent from their home in the NW to his brother's home in the Virginia. Ninety days later she came home and has never been the same. After photographing the backroads and hamlets across America--all on auto, she came home and took an online photography course, read dozens of books on technique and vision and stepped out into a new career. Her passion is coaching young people to discover their brilliance. She calls it Life-Themes Coaching and during one nearly half-day session, she unpacks what makes you brilliant and one of a kind. Then she matches the discoveries with a photography session where she tells the story of your life with her camera. In her personal life, she is a wife, mother, and grandmother delighting in her flourishing family!
