I’ve developed some convictions about daily life.
First of all, I’ve discovered that I’m too much of a perfectionist when it comes to starting something. This is a problem. This also leads me to my first conviction:
There really is no better time than now. I don’t know why it’s taking me forever to get this one down, but it is. Procrastination is truly the key to disaster. I, of all people, should realize this. I really need to embrace this one, especially since my day-to-day world of work and ministry consists of very little deadlines. I could end up putting something off until eternity!
I need to do laundry at least once a week. End of story. I was commando the day I came home completely hammered at four in the morning, and my roommates had to change me out of my puke-soaked clothing.
I really don’t have to do anything. I don’t even have to go to work. Being a responsible adult with a job is a choice. Being responsible in any way, shape, or form is a choice. There is absolutely no pressure in this life. But alas, as a Christian, Christ’s love compels me. That’s freedom.
The best moments in life seriously are when you’re doing what you love. Sometimes you’re with the people you love, sometimes you’re by yourself. But you feel absolutely no shame. You have complete freedom in that moment. You could scream or cry or curse. It doesn’t even matter, because you’re doing what you love.
I’m alive. There’s a reason lifetimes last for years and years and years. There’s also a reason we sometimes feel a lifetime isn’t long enough. I’m just blessed to be living one. Remember that.
The daily routine doesn’t need to be a daily grind. The daily routine is what our lives our made of.
Day by day by day by day by day by day by day by day…
I want to be awake for it.
