Drunk & Reassured

06 January 2013 3 comments
Busyness is the most prevalent drunkenness of the modern age.

"Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot possibly be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day."

Tim Kreider, in this piece.

    I've reaffirmed this is true in reverse...trying to remind myself that I do exist and have value even though I am currently in demand very few hours of the day. Super awesome quote!

    That reminds me of a quote from Craig Groeschel, "If the Devil can't make us really really bad, he'll make us really really busy!" Busyness is comforting sometimes. At least it gives me an excuse for being tired...
