Finish What You Started

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”

My last entry in this series (Day 78 of 100 Days of Joy) was on April 3, 2015. Why did I stop? I have no clue what was going on in my life at that time. I’ve struggled with journaling for as long as I can remember. As a writer, that has always puzzled me. When I began my 100 Days of Joy, I delayed the process because I wasn’t sure if I could sustain it for 100 days – not because I wouldn’t have 100 Days of Joy – but because I don’t do well with journaling.

Well, here I am 865 days later picking up right where I left off. Did I have joy during those 865 days? Of course I did! I just didn’t document it! What am I happy about today? I’m happy and I’m thanking God for new beginnings. Every day is an opportunity for new beginnings. While we cannot unscramble scrambled eggs (Thank you, Bishop Evans), we can repurpose those scrambled eggs! So if you have regrets from yesterday, remember that all is not lost. You can use your yesterday regrets as a foundation for today’s success. All is not lost because every new day is an opportunity to begin again. And therein lies my Joy!
