“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.” Paulo Coelho
Joseph Cook (via kvtes)
So often being ‘busy’ is used as a badge of honour, as a way to establish your superiority, as if being ‘busy’ somehow demonstrates that you matter. I’m guilty of it myself. I have a fear of stagnating, of being at home when life around me is marching forward, of ending my day alone and in silence. But just being busy doesn’t mean you’re getting where you want to go and I’m going to have to work out a way to be still, to cut out the crap, and to focus on what matters.
