Busy Bees Miss Their Entire Life

09 Jun

I was messaging my friend, Todd, on Facebook this morning. It wasn’t that long ago. About five minutes ago (9:18am EST). When I asked how he was doing, he said he was “keeping busy”.


Why is that we always find ourselves in a position where we are always keeping busy? As a society, I’ve noticed that most of us are constantly moving. Seldom do we sit still and just breathe. Even sports fans. Go to a baseball game and you will see people hardly stay in their seats for more than 5 innings. They get restless.

Why are we always on the move? It is like we are running away from something. We don’t want to face something in our lives, so we keep moving to avoid hoping it won’t catch up to us. Maybe you should stop and think that perhaps with you constantly moving, you are missing out on some potentially wonderful things that could happen in your life.

It really is as simple as stopping to smell the flowers. Instead of eating at your desk, go to a park for lunch. Instead of hitting the busy stores, window shop with friends. Take a vacation with friends or by yourself. Create some ‘me’ time. You need it. Lord knows I need it as well.

I try to take advantage of every minute I have to myself. While sleep is a wonderful thing, I am not talking about sleeping the time away because you will still be missing out on life. The point is to go out and enjoy it. Forget about your worries for a day. You can deal with it tomorrow.

Bottom line: SLOW DOWN! Enjoy what life has to offer. Busy bees will always miss their entire life. All they do is work. We weren’t designed to always work. Take a day to enjoy yourself.
