Living Life in The In-Between

But life doesn’t give a shit. Life moves on even while we live in the past. We can’t undo what’s done already. Yesterday is no more. If we hang on to yesterday, we’re trying to live in the past and squandering the present and what may be for our future. You will make mistakes. That’s part of life’s journey.

Two Things Jehovah’s Witnesses Taught Me Without Saying A Word

When you screw up you need to straighten things out. The sooner the better of course but you do what you can. 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.
