Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.
Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

I grew up with my mom telling me a similar story. She would say, if everyone put their problems in a large bowl and you could go choose something different than your own, chances are you'd take yours back. Compared to everyone else, it doesn't seem so bad. Thanks for sharing. Sometimes life seems overwhelming and it's important to keep things in perspective. I try to look at the big picutre.
Progress, not an Perfection....
Wow, that was powerful! And, thanks as sometimes I tend to think my problems are some of the biggest and I know they are not but need to be reminded.
The Cross Room
The young man was at the end of his rope.
Seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer.
"Lord, I can't go on," he said.
"I have too heavy a cross to bear."
The Lord replied,
"My son, if you can't bear it's weight,
just place your cross inside this room.
Then open another door and pick any cross you wish."
The man was filled with relief.
"Thank you, Lord,"
he sighed, and did as he was told.
As he looked around the room he saw many different crosses;
some so large the tops were not visible.
Then he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.
"I'd like that one, Lord,"
he whispered. And the Lord replied,
"My son, that's the cross you brought in."

When life problems seem overwhelming,
it helps to look around and see what others are having to endure.
Then you may see for yourself that you are more fortunate than you realized.
