Closer Than Yesterday

Sometimes the best and most memorable journeys take time.  Getting in your car and driving to your favorite sunny destination may take a few days but think of the sites you would see and things you would experience along the way. 

Day by day you would get closer to your goal but you had to start and you had to have a plan.  The plan may not include stormy weather, a flat tire or unplanned delays or detours but every day you get closer.

What about your goals?  They don’t always go as planned but that doesn’t mean you are not making progress.

Slow progress is better than no progress.  Every step forward is a step closer to where you want to be.  Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get there as quickly as you may have planned.

Believe that you will get there.  You will arrive. You are closer than you were yesterday.  Stay on your journey and on the path that is ahead of you today.  Today’s path must be traveled to get where you are headed.

I’m cheering for you.
