From 1:30 – 5:30 today I ran from appointment to appointment.
That’s not usual. Usually I have a moment or two, or more, in between. Today I finished farewell sentences as I headed out the door. Each appointment was completed. And the next awaited.
Interestingly, as I gauged the moments after the end of these hours, I felt refreshed.
Perhaps busyness can also bring about a certain lightness in a day. I find accomplishing something is refreshing to me. And back to back opportunities continue the refreshment.
I came home and told my wife maybe she should be booking my life so that I could run from one thing to the next. And then I remember the days where I was running and my children missed a moment or more of my life.
So, somewhere in between is the center of life. Refreshed but not bypassing others!
