One part at a time, one day at a time.

Instead of concentrating on why we can't do a thing, we would be wise to change our "Yes, but . . ." attitude to a more positive one. Saying "yes" means I really do want to change my life for the better.
--Liane Cordes

We truly can do these things that are our "hearts' pure desires." However, most of us look at the whole task and feel overwhelmed. We need, instead, to look at the task's many parts. One part at a time, one day at a time, we can accomplish any goal we set for ourselves. I know a recovering woman who wrote a 300-page dissertation, the final achievement to obtain her PhD. When asked at a meeting how she ever did it, her reply was, "One word at a time." That's wonderful advice. No matter how many goals were missed or plans dashed when we were still using, now that we are recovering, each of us can do whatever is in our hearts - if we do it little by little, not all at once, today.

Today, I will do one small task that will contribute toward the achievement of a life goal.

Thanks for sharing V. I know

Thanks for sharing V. I know in the past that I had alot of self-doubts but lately I have reached to a point in my life where I truly think that everything is really possible. Every little tiny thing in life counts and I don't have to do it all today but I can start doing one small part of it...little by little..with patience and kindness to myself and others...hard work and persistance...anything is possible because I am the child of the most Mighty God. He already equipped me with everything I need to succeed in this life. Now it is up to me to make it happens.

It's good to have goals and dreams, but while you're waiting for things to change, waiting for promises to come to pass, don't be discontent with where you are. Learn to enjoy the season that you're in--Pastor Joel Osteen
