A week ago, I posed the question: Where do you start in starting over? I wrote in my last entry that a good place to start would be, “I’m sorry.” Apologizing and repenting of one’s own wrongdoing is tough, but there’s no way to solve a problem if we don’t even recognize the problem to begin with.

I have to admit how weird it feels to write again. I’ve been away for a couple of months because of the many things I was tending to.
At first it was because of a conference that happened last August. Then it became about work, women from my small group, family matters, singles ministry, helping a couple of friends, and the list goes on. Before I knew it, everything snowballed into this pile of “stuff” I had to attend to.
This was what I wished I could have entitled this article. I wish I had, like so many others, already figured out my life at 25. But the reality was different.
I’ve got a major event coming up in August, and even as early as now, I’m already fighting for some time to still write. So from now up to August, the only time I can find to think about my articles is when I’m in the restroom. Not very inspiring, I know.
I once heard that busyness is one threat to our spirituality. I instantly thought, okay great the lesson here is to never make yourself too busy. After that, I dismissed busyness as evil, to the point where I was already apologizing in advance to God for the months ahead.
