My friend Natalie taught a lesson during our women's meeting at church recently on "Having Temperance in All Things".
Temperance = moderation and self-restraint
I easily understand this in terms of harmful substances and addictive behaviors, but when I think about what "Temperance in All Things" means, I have trouble.
I haven't been good at knowing how to be temperate in goal achievement, for example. I aim high, and then I overbook myself and get overwhelmed by all that needs to be accomplished.
I haven't known at what point I can say, "I've done enough."
In fact, just that morning I was praying for some insight on how to keep up better with all that I juggle.
Part of my problem is that I've had the mindset that I can do anything -- and so there's no such thing as doing "too much". I don't always know how to temper my over-ambitious tendencies, because frankly, they've helped me achieve some things that I'm pretty happy about.
