Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That…

I don’t have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way that you love me.

                                                                                                David Crowder

 

The New Orleans paraphrase would be “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

What are you doing that is a time suck? It accomplishes none of your goals and fritters away your most valuable finite resource- time. I made a list of the things in my own life that I don’t have time for. Ain’t nobody got time for:

Unforgiveness

Self-pity

Self-loathing

Self-aggrandizement

Selfishness

Arrogance

Conceit

Prejudice

Gluttony

Apathy

Fear

Laziness

Hypochondria

Computer games

Excuses

Entitlement

Whining

Snarkiness

Irritation

Gossip

Unrealistic expectations

Jealousy

Regret

Jealousy

Acute emotional sensitivity

Overwork

Bitterness

Hatred

Anger

Stinginess

Materialism

Frustration

Shopping as entertainment

Picking fights

Letting someone else’s outlook/attitude/mood determine mine

Taking responsibility for things that are God’s responsibility

Judging only by visible results

 

What don’t you have time for?
