Everyone has their own song to sing, own bell to ring and own dragon to slay. How big or bad your challenges are can be impacted by many things and a challenge is a challenge, whether it is big or small.
For many, their battles are difficult – finding a new job, going back to school, raising children, losing weight, learning to accept or learning to forgive. Nobody knows what somebody else is going through and nobody knows how big and bad your demons are.
Well, sometimes life, and change are not about the big things. Sometimes you can be happy with all the big things and realize that all you can work on day in, day out are the small ones. So, for anybody that doesn’t have a life-changing goal in mind, remember that a day-changing one is good too. For me, I’m focusing on my bad habits and the little things that will make my organized chaos a little more organized. As a friend put it, I’m not trying to lose weight, re-direct my career, or gain a diploma…“I’m just trying to hang up my coat”. A lot can be said for that one little statement and what it means in regards to life.
With age comes wisdom and with time comes less opportunities to change your world. Small steps are still steps and if you think about it carefully, you can get a lot more small steps into a lifetime than you can big ones.
There’s going to be a time when you don’t want people to know how old you are. Because you will realize that you haven’t accomplished any of your goals. – George, Go On
