ARE YOU TOO BUSY?
Ask yourself these questions:
Is your back hurting? Neck tense? Eyes can’t focus?
Are you spending more time worrying while your shoulders slump in agony?
Too much pressure at work? Kids driving you nuts? Do you feel pulled here and there?
IF YOU ANSWERED “YES” to more than one of these questions, you are probably STRESSED which can stem from so many things,but THE BUSY-NESS OF LIFE could be the problem. Are you TOO busy?
I’m not going to talk about a list of traveling vacations you should go on. I’m not going to tell you to take a day off from work or play hooky of any kind. I’m going to talk about ATTITUDE!
I know you can’t change things about your life. You have to work. You have to make money for your family. You have to take care of bills and provide for yourself. These are things that just have to happen, but if you are stressing out all the time about doing these things, you are being TOO BUSY to be HAPPY. If you are too busy to be happy, you are waaaaaaaaaaaaay tooooooooo busy!
Haven’t you met people like this…they are so wound up in the every day routine that they are almost ooozing with grumpiness. You can see it in their face and even in their walk before they even say one word. It’s really bad when that person ends up being your waiter/waitress or a checker at Walmart when you have an overflowing buggy. Just pray the entire time you’re loading the conveyor!
If you are one of these people who are TOO BUSY to be HAPPY, do yourself and THOSE AROUND YOU a favor…change your perspective. Change the way you look at your tasks. ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING!
Instead of thinking “I have to do …”, look at it like “I get to…”
You GET to go to work, because you have a job!
You GET to make breakfast for your kids, because God blessed you with them!
You GET to mow the lawn, because you have a great place to live!
And if you aren’t a “TOO BUSY to be HAPPY” kind of person, seek out those who are and PRAY for them. See it as a privilege to do so as well—You GET to pray for them, because you are blessed and want them to be blessed too!
HERE ARE THE TWO POINTS:
#1 Don’t be TOO BUSY to be HAPPY.
#2 Pray for those you see who seem to be TOO BUSY to be HAPPY.
HOW’S THIS FOR PERSPECTIVE….
