Life gets so busy sometimes.
Okay, life is busy all the time.
I keep thinking that an easier pace of life is just around the corner. I tell myself, “When I get that project finished, I’ll have time to breathe,” or, “When this Bible study is over, I’ll have more free nights,” or, “After the holidays, things will slow down.”
But somehow, “When” never gets here.
So I’m learning, slowly, how to deal with the chaos. Because the truth is, the chaos will never end. I mean really, I don’t even have kids yet, so who am I kidding?! In reality, my life is on track toward becoming more and more busy, chaotic, stressful and crowded.
Bring it on.
Instead of hoping and waiting for the chaos to become less chaotic (because I now realize that will never happen in this world) I am learning to thrive despite the chaos.
So here is my blog; brand new, a little empty, but determined to be a place where I can flesh out just what it means to thrive in a broken and spinning world.
Be forewarned, I am a recovering perfectionist.
I have stalled launching this blog for months now, because I was worried about getting everything just perfect first. But you know what? Perfect is overrated. Today I’m taking the first step, because without getting started I’ll never get anywhere.
I invite you to tag along as I embark on this journey of writing, and I implore you to do as much talking as listening. Join in the conversation, respond to what I’m saying, and feel free to speak up when you disagree. Together, we’re going to learn how to thrive.
