What Should Have Been

My 2015 journal is filled with uncrossed items on the to-do-list pages.
Here are some of them:

To-Do List

The truth is, I want to do so much in a single day, at every moment. I want to be super: save the world, be the hero, have the spotlight beamed at me, etc. . . . I want to be invincible, capable.

But I could never be one.

This is why I’m stuck in an almost endless cycle of self-destructive patterns. From envy to jealousy to social-climbing to self-pity to being morbidly emotional to being depressed to thinking suicidal thoughts to disillusionment to moving on, then back to step one.

Exhausting? Exhausting.

But mark this day, this year. This year will not be the year of guilt. This will not be the year for regrets. This will not be the year for that self-destructive cycle.

This year is all about God’s redemption. This year is about new chances. About dauntless attempts and more passionate tries, and of better sun shines and wider star-filled night skies.

No more to-do-list items hanging uncrossed. No more ‘What Should Have Been’. No more of last year’s darkness.

This year is all about love. This year is all about Jesus.
