I found this quote on my son's blog: "Don't wait to be proud of yourself until you reach your goal; be proud of each step you take along the way."
Isn't that great counsel? Celebrate each small victory or win. In my writing, I celebrate pages written each day. I can't write a book in a day, but I can write a couple of pages. In my exercising, I celebrate those days when I get out and walk, when I did more than I did the day before. In my spiritual growth, I celebrate those times when I have been able to let go of a hurt.
Joy for today: celebrating steps along the way.
