Are we all just running a rat race? I think I tend to run the rat race much more than I would like or even God would like.
We get caught up in what we think we "should" be doing over what God wants us doing. Like, spending way too much time on pinterest thinking about things we want to do, want to have, instead of being grateful for what we do have. The kids are going to remember you spending time with them, not the dreams you had about the way you want your bedroom to look. I can be very guilty of this. Then if you are not careful you get sucked in and have spent so much time on there you can't get other things done. I want my kids and husband to remember me loving them, spending time with them, and caring for them. I don't want them to remember me trying to keep up with things that aren't even possible. So don't get me wrong, I do love the inspiration from Pinterest, but I think it can be the keep is "busy" when it's not necessary. Pinterest is truly just my example here, this can go for any number of things.
Like the saying goes, "If the devil can't make you bad, he'll make you busy." I will most definitely be trying to not be too busy for the most important people and things in my life. How about you?
