Candy Wrapper Wisdom

I read this on a candy wrapper recently – calories AND wisdom: “Always make your past self jealous.”  It reminded me of the line from Sammy Kershaw’s Better Than I Used To Be song I wrote about recently: “I’m learning who I’ve been ain’t who I gotta be.”

It is surprisingly easy to forget that who we’ve been ain’t who we gotta be, that we constantly have within us the power to make our past selves jealous.  It never really strays too far from Paul and Romans 12:2 – “be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
