Sometimes I think people start a long term project, and then panic when they get a few days in to it. Oh my gosh and golly, it’s only been three days?! How am I ever going to keep this up for 362 more? This is where you just have to keep pushing along. A few years ago, I worked with a personal fitness trainer whose mantra was, “it doesn’t get easier, you get stronger.” Yeah, you think, but that means it’s still hard. True, but to quote millennial saint Lin-Manuel Miranda: “look at where you are, look at where you started…”
And just keep on keeping on.
