I have been struggling with several different things this month. My failure as a dad, my struggle as a Christian, and the Christmas holiday to name a few. Then there is my struggle as a writer. My words have stopped flowing, I struggle to write more than a few sentences, and some things still hasn’t come together.
It’s enough to frustrate a person.
However, the past couple of days has revealed to me the source of my problems. I haven’t been able to accept there are things I can’t change. My frustration is grounded in this simple truth, “you can’t change what is.”
Thus, my goal for 2020 is to accept what life gives me. To change the things in my life which are holding me back, and to let go of the things I can’t control. I am looking forward to what the new year will bring me.
