Caught up in the busyness
It's so easy to let ourselves get lost in the daily responsibilities and how current culture seems to make us think we need to be "busy" all the time.....so we tend to just try to trudge through our days only to get up and do it all over again the next day....and the thing that gets put off....the single most important thing that we shouldn't forget....is to take time to reconnect and "be present" in the moment, daily.
When I get "too caught up in the busyness", I notice that my state of mind suffers. I need that connection.....with myself and also with God. For me, some of things I do that help me "be present" and connect.....listening to music, centering prayer, and painting.
I also need to connect with others and just being better connected to myself helps me be more present with people so that I can really connect instead of the constant stream of thoughts running through my head at any given moment.
What are some of the things you do? Can you find a way to do at least one of those things daily?
