Yesterday I decided to go to Ryan's house to spend some quality time with my brother, and my wife had a cow about it. I don't understand what the deal is, but whenever I need some "Jason" time, more often than not, I end up taking it at the expense of marrital comfort. That irritates me. However! All is not lost!
Church today was awesome! In gospel doctrine class, we learned about the mission of the Holy Ghost, along with quite a few other spiritual nuggets. I can't really put into words what I learned, but I know the Spirit of God was present.
In priesthood, we learned about managing money, and a lot was said that is quite true. One thing was this:
- "Living within your means" is a mind-set. It is a life-style. It is not an amount of money you make. So, if you're thinking to yourself, "If I just made $$$ more money, I would be able to live within my means, you're usually fooling yourself. I know that is true with me.
I tend to live right on the edge of my income, and that has to change. Yup... That has to change, and hopefully I'm on the right track to helping that come to pass.
Anyway... That's it for now. Life is good.
