” You must build up your life action by action, and be content if each one achieves its goal as far as possible- and no one can keep you from this.” Marcus Aurelius
Life is made up of moments, and if you keep your eye on what is directly in front of you and just do that well, then you’ll live a good life. Big obstacles are intimidating, but they are conquered by small, very doable actions.
Don’t focus on the the big intimidating goal. Losing 20 pounds is hard. Writing a novel is hard. But choosing a healthy meal right now is easy. Writing 300 words right now is doable. Keep doing the small things well an the big things will fall into place.
