Why do we rush get so busy and not rest? There are a myriad reasons to be sure but for me a lot of times – it is guilt. I know dumb right?
I’m comparing myself to others and their schedules AND their decisions on priorities. Comparison is dangerous and it is rarely healthy. My priorities are unique, my situation is different from theirs and I’m being led in a different direction. When I am in alignment with my beliefs and what God has place in my life and heart my schedule and activities will be different from everyone else.
Society does equate success on an entirely different set of values then I do, so using that as a measuring stick for my success is the wrong way to go.
