Working too much?

My husband told someone I work 7 days a week. When I entered the conversation, I fell into a ‘typical’ narrative around work.

“Well, I don’t really work that much. But yes, I work too much. I need to learn to turn off.” yada yada yada and so on.

What’s actually true but clearly not on the tip of my tongue is: “well, yes, most days I do work. But most of what I do is what I love to do. And because I work for myself, I get to create my own balance however I want. So some week days I work less. I am still learning how to best manage my time (which I am sure will be a lifelong journey), but I’m happy with what I do.”
