I want to yell at myself and tell me to stop eating my chocolate covered raisins just because they are there. The difference between me and someone of a healthy weight is that they listen to their bodies and stop after a few peices.
I also want to yell at myself for the desire to spend money like it's burning a hole in my pocket. The difference between me and someone who is more well off is that they don't feel the need to spend money just because they have it.
And don't get me started on wasting time. I want to yell at myself for wasting so much time. The difference between me and a person who doesn't waste time is that a person who doesn't waste time realizes that we all get the same amount of time everyday and makes the most of every moment.
It's a matter of how I think about the things that I have.
Food is for nourishment to my body to keep me alive and sustain me day by day. I eat because my body needs it to survive. I don't eat because it's an enjoyable activity.
And money is to use for God's glory. I use it for my needs, I use it to bless others, and occasionally I use it for something nice for myself, But nothing I have is truly my own. It all belongs to God and I'm given the opportunity to invest it wisely. What I do with it will either glorify God, or feed my selfishness.
And time does not discriminate. We all have 24 hours in a day, and 60 minutes in an hour, and 60 seconds in a minute. And even then we are a mere vapor in the wind. If we waste the time we have now, we will never get it back.
Just remember that.
