“There is more to life than getting things done.”
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn ~
It’s so easy to get caught up in being busy. We pride ourselves on how busy we are. We compare and compete- who’s busiest as if that gives us some kind of measurable merit. But it doesn’t. Not really.
Our value is in being, in appreciating what’s around us, connecting with others at a heart level, being authentic, and honoring our truth. And yet, these things seem less culturally acceptable than being busy.
Let’s change this. It’s within our power to do so. Let’s take a stand for our humanity. Let’s take a stand for the state of our souls.
I value the humanity in myself and others.
