We ALL can become overly busy, living a kinda chaotic life at times with SO much going on!
Whether that be in our own lives with our day to day activities and responsibilities.
You know the dishes, laundry, working, taking care of our kids, cooking dinner, walking and feeding the dog... you get it!
To the unforeseen, and not always wanted, little (or often times BIG) events that occur outside our bubble (brought on by others) that directly affect us!
Like that A**hole guy that just cut you off and is driving like a maniac, your boss giving you a ton of work when you thought you'd get off early! (the "little" things)
