All year long, I’ve been working on an embroidery project. In fits and starts as I find my hands free throughout the week, I pick it up and add some more stitches.
Here a little, there a little, it’s coming together. And gradually, all those tiny stitches added together are starting to take shape and turn into a beautiful handwork project that someday soon we’ll be able to display on our walls.
It’s the same with our lives.
The little choices we make. The habits we form. The decisions we make… these all add to the canvas of our lives.
By themselves, the little daily choices and decisions might not seem like they really matter. But they do.
Don’t give up! Don’t stop inching forward. Keep making wise choices, keep exercising discipline, and keep developing good habits.
It will add up to a beautiful masterpiece… a life well lived.
