Loving yourself is not an excuse to sit around, be lazy and eat donuts.
We are created for excellence- created to work hard. We’ve been given a spirit of self control, and discipline should be exercised in every area of our lives. If we all just did what we wanted, we all may be eating only cheeseburgers and doing nothing but watch tv. And you KNOW I love me some cheeseburgers and love me some TV, but all things in moderation to be our best selves.
So I will say this: We've all been given one life on earth. We all have the same 24 hours. I'm encouraging you to make the most of it.
Knock on doors. Follow your dreams. Pursue your passion.
Stay in balance with everything.
This is a daily decision (as it should be). The Bible says “Give us this day our daily bread” for a reason. We have grace for the day. THIS day. Don't worry about tomorrow - but work your hardest for tomorrow.
So love yourself in a balanced way. Do things you love. Have fun and enjoy life! BUT- don't let a spirit of complacency set in because the world has you coddling yourself.
Set goals, shake off self pity and get to work. Do it all while giving God the reigns.
Hope this helps. I love you.
