Stop the glorification of busy

A few years ago I read this post, which led me to this article, which changed my approach to life completely. When I read it I was recently promoted, in a new country with all the mess that moving to another country implies, this online space was born… I was really busy. But, was I? Deep down we all think that being super busy is super cool. It’s like when we complain/ brag about being in a worst situation than the person we are talking to. Somehow we’ve made suffering cool.

I really don’t know how I’m going to cope with work, that terrible German weather and the constant fear of missing important moments of our family and friend’s life. Any ideas? How do you get over this difficult back to reality time? Image via HonestlyWTF
