Busyness is a virtue.
You know why? Because, when I look back on my life, I don’t want to see wasted time.
I want to set goals, get involved, use my gifts, change the world, even. I never want to be bored, because that means I’m lazy. I’m not even sure how often I want to be silent and still, because what does that accomplish?
I stay busy because there’s so much to do. And if I don’t do it, who will?
Or maybe . . .
That couldn’t be it.
But maybe it is for some people. Not me . . . right?
Except sometimes I wonder if maybe I stay busy because I’m afraid that when I look back on my life, I won’t have accomplished anything.
