Inspiring words by Edward Everett Hale

"I am only one,
But I am still one.
I can not do everything,
But I can still do something;
And because I can not do everything
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do."
Found this quote in one of my devotions & thought it was pretty fitting to exercise, eating right, & just about everything else in life! How often do we give up because we feel so small & powerless?
The world is huge & full of obstacles. But letting ourselves get overwhelmed & believing that we can't make a difference isn't the answer. Taking that first step, that one little action (no matter how small), is better than doing nothing!
DId I feed my migraine yesterday & go over my calorie goal? Yep. But, I still logged on to spark, tracked my food & worked on staying on course with my other goals even though I didn't feel well & just wanted to give in & do nothing.
Because even though I am only one, there are millions of other "ones" who count on me to stay on track & we are all in this together!
