Earned, not given

Earned, not given. Yes, it is a mindset.  We put in the effort and we get a return.  Not sure, that even if it were possible to achieve a goal or improve without effort that it would be satisfying when completed.  And yes there are some times that it is challenging when you know that nothing good will come easy.  But that is what this journey towards THPL is all about – it is the difficulty that opens our senses, it makes us feel that which we might otherwise not feel and it gives us the power to do it again and again.  So, think it out, write it down and then go through whatever you have to go through to get to your goal, it just makes it that much more worth it than if somebody had just handed it to you.  Yes indeed…

Loving life when I earn it!
