[caption id="attachment_1361" align="alignnone" width="300"] Refocus[/caption] There are time in our lives when we will need to refocus and do what is right for ourselves.  And, what is right for self may not be right for others.  That’s okay.  Part of the beauty of life is we can continue to grow as individuals and shape who or what we want to become.

So, with a desire to please God and right the wrong I went to my spiritual leaders and confessed to them all of my transgressions from age 7 to the present. That was probably TMI for them but I wanted the cleanest slate possible. I spilt the beans on everything I felt even hinted at sin since I thought it would help.
