I have wasted so much time in my life. I have wasted so many opportunities. It is frustrating to think about. I hate wasting time. I hate being unproductive. I hate laziness. But so often, I have allowed myself to waste time. I have allowed myself to be unproductive, and have allowed myself to indulge in laziness. I can’t blame someone else. I can’t neglect the truth, reality. I have to take responsibility for my life, my decisions, and my actions. I don’t want to live a wasted life. Honestly, this is a great fear of mine. That I would waste what God has given me. That I would waste the time, opportunities, and gifts that I have been entrusted with. Each day, I need to be focused. Prepared. Disciplined. Each day, I need to do what I know I need to do. Each day, I need to do the little things. Each day I must resist the pull to be unproductive, lazy, and satisfied with a comfortable life. Each day, I must relentlessly be the man I know I was created to be. Each day, I must push myself beyond myself. I must push myself into the hard, uncomfortable, difficult. I must let go of myself, each day.
