You do not have to talk to many people in the world of suburbia to hear them say that they are busy and tired.  It seems like everyone (or at least most folks) constantly move from one thing to anothtreadmiller.  Pick up this kid, drop that kid off.  Go to work, hit the store on the way home.  Workout and then go to Home Depot.  It is like we are all on a never ending treadmill.  Is this the way it is supposed to be?  Were we designed and put here to just keep running?  Is there a remedy?  If so, what is it?  I feel like I am on this treadmill running and running and running and yet there is so much I am still not doing and am missing and there are people I am not properly loving and friendships I am not investing in.  I hate that feeling, but I do not know life without the treadmill.

  1. I completely understand what you are saying. I feel the same way so many times. We all need reminders to just stop and take some time to rest and do it without guilt. I think I could be much more productive if I could just learn that balance. Yet, when I have some down time I feel like it should be used for something. Oh and the long list that can always fill up that space. I often wonder if there is supposed to be more to life than working, eating, and sleeping. That is all I feel that I do sometimes. There will always be things that are left undone. Things that we won’t be able to do. Relationships we won’t be able to develop and things we could have done better, if only… Now it is just coming to accept that. We all have the same 24 hours in a day, now what can we do to make it meaningful.
