As you continue on your journey of developing a healthy habit this holiday season, you may run into a moment when it gets really hard. A temptation to cheat, cave or quit seems so overwhelming that you won't be able to hold it off. This quote by Robert Ingersoll tells us what we need to hear at that point. When we are completely focused on ourselves we can end up in a very isolated place. However…if we can be intentional about serving, helping and coming alongside someone else in their time of need it changes everything. What felt so hard all of a sudden seems manageable. What seemed too difficult to stick with now doesn't feel that way at all. Journeys worth taking are never short or easy…and so much of what makes them rewarding and beautiful to experience once you get to your destination is the journey that got you there. So as you go back at it tomorrow…be encouraged. Every step you take matters. If you happen to take a couple backward…go take some steps forward to helping someone else…and it will take you forward on your journey as well.
