Mike just wrote a post about a subject that hits all of us close to home.
Living life one inch at a time. (I highly recommend the video - Al Pacino is so good anyway.)
Sure, the 'big picture' is a good thing. But that inch in front of you - that's the next hill you have to take. THAT'S the most important inch in the whole fight. And then the next one. And the next one.
Whether it's an actual battle, war or football, or weightloss or sobriety or finances or getting away from your narcissistic abuser(s) - the next inch is the most important battle of your life.
And in a little while from now, you can turn around and see how all those inches added up to MILES and MILES of progress and peace.
But that next inch. It's totally worth fighting for. YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FOR IT. Because the alternative is to give up. To say YOU aren't worth fighting for.
And that is bullshit.
