Progressing or Arriving

This morning allow me to share one, single thought for us to ponder together:

To prosper is to make steady progress in every area of your life.

Today I am prospering. Not because my “To Do” list is done. Not because of achievement or destination. I am prospering because I am keeping my feet moving. Clawing at the ground, barely with forward motion, but moving nonetheless. One day with a backward glance I will marvel at how far these small efforts will have taken me.

I’d love to chat a bit today. Does this resonate with you? What does steady progress vs. destination mean in your life?
