We have a new writing prompt every week, and we write fast and furious, for five minutes flat.
This week’s prompt is:
I’m addicted to busy.
There, I said it.
I have a hard time not doing anything. Even if I’m sitting still, I want to be doing something. I say “yes” to too much, feel bad saying, “no,” and get buzzed off the rush of the race.
But then I hit a wall.
I realize I’ve overcommitted, and I ask myself, Why?
Why am I back in this same space, the space I know isn’t good for me or my family?
I need to learn the practice and discipline of slow.
Slow, deep breathing.
Slow Saturdays. Slow drives. Slow strolls.
I need to resist the rush.
I think of Mary and Martha. I’m definitely a Martha. Bustling about, planning this, preparing that. Do, do, do. Never sit.
But is that the best way? What about the critical aspect of soaking in truth at the feet of my Master, hanging on every word? Single-minded, undistracted. Just savoring.
It doesn’t come naturally for me, that’s for sure. Maybe that’s why it’s called a spiritual discipline.
But I want to crave slow. I want to take time to notice, to enjoy.
