Change doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a slow, barely noticeable process of baby steps. Like natural erosion at the shore. Little by little, grain by grain, the beach becomes one with the ocean.
So it is with any habit we aim to change. The inches don’t fall off without months of eating right and moving more. Our outlook doesn’t brighten until we’ve fought long and hard in the war against negativity. Fall’s seeds aren’t ready to blossom until months of winter has made way for Spring.
To expect any more is a recipe for disappointment. To expect any less is a recipe for mediocrity.
