Busy isn’t better.
Sometimes I think we like to stay busy because it makes us feel important. And useful. And worthwhile. Like having a planner full of appointments proves you are valuable.
But the most important people don’t care if you’re important.
Sometimes you just have to slow down…take the time to realize that every moment is just a moment and be busy about the things that really matter. Things like having room in your schedule for impromptu beach days, friends, baby giggles, pizza, and sand.
It may mean we volunteer less, work less, earn less, blog less, tweet less, watch less, see less of some people—so we can really be present to the ones that matter.
But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it and it will not be taken away from her.” –John 10:41-42
