Life is too short to be busy

There is a quote that goes:

“Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”

I’m not sure if it’s from Dolly Parton or some unknown person. Credit to whoever came up with these wise words. I decided to have my own version of the quote while my close friend, Catey, and I were chatting over email (that’s how busy we are) about how busy we are and that we shouldn’t make plans to meet up but just get together.
