I’ll be honest, upon receiving Breaking Busy in the mail I was a little skeptical. I viewed it as “just another book” on how to live life to our fullest. You know, another “fix-it” book.
However, by page five Alli Worthington had my full attention. Her conversational style of writing made me feel like I was sitting talking to a friend over a cup of coffee and laughing and joking about the craziness that our lives had become.
I found my head nodding in agreement throughout the first half of the book. And by the chapter titled “Editing,” Alli had me tearing up.
I write (and therefore think) about God and life and kids a lot, so I wasn’t expecting to be so drawn in with her ideas on breaking the busyness in our lives. She is very real and shows how finding peace and purpose is not only attainable, but almost easily attainable.
One of my favorite aspects of this book are her lists. She lists out practical tips, things to watch out for, and questions for self-reflection. This is helpful to go back and reference later.
(Oh yeah, and she’s hysterical. Another favorite part. 😉 )
I think you should go check it out, whether you are living in a world of crazy busy right now or not. Even if you are in a slow and peaceful season of life, Alli’s ideas and application can be enlightening and help you to recognize possible future “busy.”
It sure did for me.
