Busyness was defined by Danish theologian Soren Kierkegaard as “the state of constant distraction that allows people to avoid difficult realities and maintain self-deceptions.”
Wow…read those words again and take a “pause”. I can only speak for myself when I say those words hit home for me in a major way. As the year 2012 comes to a close today, let us take some time to “pause” and reflect back on our year. What went well? What didn’t go so well? What learning experiences can we take into 2013?
This day in age it is so easy for us to stay “busy”. With work, family, TV, twitter, Facebook, etc.. we often get lost in the shuffle and the days fly by. Yet, we are always in a constant state of “GO”. Then we look up and wonder where time has gone. In 2013, carve out sometime each day, lets start with 5 minutes and then work our way up to an hour, where we just sit and reflect on our day. We as humans have a tendency to push time. Even though logically, time cannot be manipulated. Let’s live and enjoy each moment. And while doing that, let’s think about the events of each day, no matter how small. There is always a lesson as well as a blessing! God is speaking to us. But are we too” busy” to listen?
Wishing you and yours a happy New Year, be safe out there!
