Empath Health Blog, Jim Andrews

There is a saying, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!” While the idea of eating an elephant is unthinkable for many reasons, the point of the saying is that when we have a big job to do, looking at the big picture can sometimes leave us feeling small and unequal to the task.  Perhaps you are facing a difficult challenge in your life that seems insurmountable.

An unknown author encourages us to take it one day at a time:

Today is only a small manageable segment

Of time in which our difficulties

Need not overwhelm us.

When we focus on acting with integrity and conviction in this moment, this hour, this day – the big picture will take care of itself!

Have a great week, everyone!
