Busy Nothings

"Life seems more like a quick succession of Busy Nothings" --Mansfield Park.

Does anyone else feel like sometimes their life is just a bunch of busy nothings? Things we fill our lives with that amount to nothing but to fill time.

Sometimes I feel that way, and I hate it. I prefer to stay active in being involved in something, no matter what it is, and detest feeling as if I'm not actually doing something to benefit anyone. Including myself.

Sometimes, I think, that we get so involved in life and keeping on top of things which life requires us to do that our life turns into busy nothings.

For those who have not seen the Jonny Lee Miller version of Mansfield Park: DO! Its so romantic and sweet.

I agree completely. I have a lot of time on my hands since I only work three nights a week, and sometimes I feel like I fill my empty days with busy nothings. I get so caught up in finding anything to do that I never get anything really important done.

I agree. We spend to much time involved in things that are of no real consequence, both temporal and eternal. i try to not worry to much about things that are temporal.
