#42. Busy! Busy! Busy!
Day 26. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!
Busy! Busy! Busy!
Busy being trapped by memories of past painful sorrows
Busy being anxious about the uncertainties of our tomorrows
Busy making plans about a great life and never actually doing any living
Busy working dead-end jobs with people who drain and slowly suck us dry
Busy wasting our years today on the promise of a blurry future when we retire
Busy spending our youth away and accumulating funds for designer wheelchairs
Busy putting our dreams aside and investing our souls and resources into our fears
Busy as rats in a race to nowhere, busy doing the ‘what’, without asking ‘why’ and ‘how’
So very busy being right about everything, we spare no time for the beauty of right now
Life is a melodic symphony of NOWs, so when did we decide to buy into this ‘busy’ lie?
What if this feeling you have right here, right now, is the happiest you will ever get to be?
Perhaps, today is a good time to start re-framing the past and co-creating a new clearer vision
Get ‘un-busy’ and embrace this moment, become present and show up now, life is happening NOW!
Busy! Busy! Busy! We’re chasing shadows, killing dreams, burying gifts and talents. And then we die!
