I screw up a lot of the time.
My temple is in large disarray – physically, spiritually, mentally. I do and say the wrong things more often than not. I hurt the people around me when I don’t mean to. My sarcasm and temper come out inappropriately, and I take my husband for granted. I have let myself get to an absurd weight for my height, and we haven’t been able to enjoy many of the activities we once did.
I know how often I mess up, and how many times I have hurt the people around me.
It doesn’t have to be this way! Self-awareness is key. Everything I do and say can help or hurt those around me. Everything I eat or don’t eat can help or hurt me. Life is about choices, and so far I have been making the wrong ones too often.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will my restoration be complete in a short time. It’s going to take a very long time to fully fix me, but every single choice of every single day is a brick. It’s entirely my choice how quickly the ruins are brought back to flourish in life.
