Don’t give up what you want most

…for what you want now.

I need this on a constant loop in my 41 year-old head, because I have, at many times in my life, given up my long-term goals/plans/dreams to satisfy a right-now desire.

Sometimes I still do.

And every day I realize how much more I still have to learn – how many things I need to do better. How I need to be better.

And how despite all of that, I am better than I used to be.

And then I thank God that for 41 years he’s allowed me to wake up every morning and get another chance to do it right.

Here’s to finally getting it right in our 40’s and learning to give up what we want now, for what we want the most.

What do you want the most?
