Sleeping Too Much

During my period of unemployment, my greatest enemy was too much sleeping. Though I wake up as early as 7:00 in the morning for my daily hulahoop and a hearty breakfast, but after cleaning the kitchen, I went to sleep again for another 2-3 hours. That made me wake up by almost noon time and I then took a bath and have my lunch. (eat again) After lunch, I always had dark chocolate and took a nap for another an hour or two. (sleep again)
That was how my days were, except for the days that I need to go somewhere or when I need to do something. I hate that way. It made me feel very guilty that I was just wasting my time while there may be a lot of senseful things to do. But that was just my weakness, when there was nothing to do or nowhere to go, I just indulged in sleeping.
My best antidote was this bible verse; "Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth." Proverbs 10:4 NIV This encouraged me to get busy doing something.

I believe even if you have a fat bank account, that could not be an excuse to sleep your whole day away.

Very good point and advice Grace. God doesn't intend for us to sleep our lives away. There are times though when it does get hard.
