This Happened.

. . .

So my wife is pretty motivated.

She tells me she wants to start a blog. I’m all for it, but I equate it to taking on another fantasy baseball team. It’ll take some time and money up front and in the end, she might make her money back.

Five years later and she makes more money working in her at-home/breezeway office than I make at my job.

Now my wife wants to start another website — Becoming Unbusy. I love the idea, but I’m really busy at the moment. I work full time plus, we just bought a fixer-upper, our daughters play every sport known to woman, and I don’t even have time to play my Nintendo Classic that I got for Christmas.

So I’m out. After all…

Trying is the


You go girl!

That’s exactly what she does. She fills ten boxes with stuff we don’t need.

The average U.S. household has 300,000 things, from paper clips

Then she writes some content for her new site while maintaining her other work. She asks me to read it over for her. Needless to say, I don’t. I’m busy complaining about how busy I am.

She casually launches the site while we’re on vacation and suddenly Zina has one-thousand followers on Facebook. That number keeps growing (it’s at 70,000 now — go check it out). She’s starting a movement that has me thinking life is more than just chaos or ignoring chaos.

I’m in. It’s not going to be easy, but let’s Become Unbusy together.

. . .

The first step on the journey to a simpler life is believing it is possible. Don’t wait for the perfect moment to start working toward Becoming UnBusy. Start today. Pop over and “like” the Becoming UnBusy Facebook page.You’ll find ongoing inspiration and the opportunity to connect with like-minded families. If you find an article in the feed that inspires you, be sure to tag your partner. We love seeing couples sharing.
