Last night in the parent group, we talked about Busyness being a guard. It got me thinking about pond skaters, the water bug that glides, skips and skates on pond surfaces. Busyness is like pond skating. It keeps us from stopping in place, from staying put, from being present. We’re constantly moving to stay afloat.
What would it be like for you to lie on your back in the middle of your busiest day and say to Busyness, “Hold up. Let’s try this. We’re going to stop for a few minutes. Completely stop the momentum and lie here in the middle of my life and feel what it feels like to move Busyness aside, for a minute or two or three or four.”
