I mentioned before that I used to love staying up late at night and getting up late the next morning. Even though I never felt very good in the morning, no matter how many hours I slept the night before because of this habit, I was not able to change it until I started attending daily Mass. Nowadays, I get up not long after 5 a.m. and go to bed around 10 p.m. and feel great all day.
Looking back, I see that the reason I had trouble going to bed early before was because I was not able to let things go. Whatever I was doing late at night, I wanted to get it done or continue as much as I could, not willing to stop or give it up ~ this was definitely attachment to things of the world. There is no such thing as finishing doing all the things of this life. I was not putting doing God's will at the head of the list. In fact, doing God's will should be the only thing on the list. I am glad that hindsight is 20/20.
