The past few days were crazy.

Not only was I sick and not feeling well, my priorities in life were overlapping.

It made me think to myself, "Have I been committing to way too much stuff?"

This could even be the reason why I am sick in the first place.

Anyway, what really happened was I had to keep everything in place. From work, to ministry (which had a big event last Sunday), personal relationships and other appointments with friends.

Of course, that's a lot to juggle. And, a number of them were overlapping. Different things were happening at same times.

Now, that should have made me crazy.

But, this actually opened my mind to something more important. I realized that during these times, my instinct on prioritization comes in.

All of the stuff I do right now are important to me. But, I can't do all of them in one instant. I have to learn how to prioritize.

That doesn't come easy though. I had to determine clearly what (or who) is important right at that moment. Secondarily, I had to say no to some really important people -- which kind of sucks but it had to be done.

Well, this is life.

Everything matters. But, you have to determine what matters right now and then just go do it.
