Promise of a new Day

I was taught that the way of progress is neither swift nor easy.
—Marie Curie—

Some of our goals are easily attained. Others demand stamina and resourcefulness. And still others require a commitment of long standing, a willingness to postpone gratification, but most of all, an acceptance of possible failure. We can never be certain of a final outcome. We can only be sure of our effort. However, we can be assured

that honest effort will allow us to make measurable progress. Life is a process. We learn and grow and move toward our goals little by little. The choice to quit moving is

also available to us. In fact, a breather from the path we’re on is occasionally in order. Recommitment is necessary, however, to begin the growth process again.
Charging ahead takes energy—emotional, mental, spiritual, even physical energy. The whole person is involved in the process of growth; our progress is in direct correlation to the process. Today may challenge me, but I will make progress.
