I was sitting with a friend the other day at a coffee shop downtown. My friend had broken his leg while skiing over the holidays and he was walking on crutches. When I asked him what he had learned through the process of recover, he said, “our lives are way too busy”. There is so much wisdom in those words. We are a culture addicted to busyness; we have become agents of chaos.
The chaos is the chatter around us promising us more money, a bigger house, a better sex life, a cool car, fame and fortune. We want it ALL! But with all the striving and reaching for our dreams we pass up what is most important, taking the time to love others.
We have Twitter accounts, Facebook pages, blogs, Pinterest accounts, email, texting and a portable phone hooked to our belts like the world might end and we wouldn’t hear about it. We are so connected, but we are so isolated.
Has anyone told you they loved you this morning?
Has anyone hugged your neck?
Have you told anyone you loved them this morning?
What is it that makes your life worth living really?
