Tuesday evening tea today!
While I woke up over a week ago & decided I was done burning my candle at both ends the actual doing so is another thing to figure out.
Why do we over busy ourselves?
Part of me says it is to escape some things & the other part of me says it is to run towards things like being in community.
Just the other day I had a convo with an introverted friend about how easy it is to stay inside & not get involved in public, but then at the same time how much energy even an introvert is given by having to go out in public for work or just for a grocery run. In all fairness, even I - an extreme extrovert - said it was easy to convince oneself to stay inside. So it works both ways.
If we're running from something the chance is it is something that we don't want to discuss or have to think about. So we find home in other places & people.
We find home where our heart is & busy ourselves in these places.
