Why busyness isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and a challenge to put it behind us.
“The trouble with being in the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.” | Lily Tomlin
Being busy used to make me feel important. It made me feel like the world needed me, like somehow I was more valuable or valid when busy. Perhaps that’s why I wore it like a badge and quickly resorted to it when people asked how life was. Yet in all reality, busyness was just another addiction I clung to so I could avoid things that made me uncomfortable.
Sadly, the things I often stayed busy to avoid happened to be some of the more worth while things in life.
