When going through my divorce I found comfort in accomplishments.
First it was something small such as just being able to get through the day without crying.
Then, it moved to getting through a week.
Soon I was working towards putting my house in order, studying for my degree in higher education and then…
I was able to move into my creative endeavors and soon I was writing books and making music.
Accomplishments are milestones… a nod to the progress that we have made along the way on our spiritual path.
It is important to embrace each one, small or large and know that with each new accomplishment grief is diminishing and joy is returning.
“Dear God, thank you for helping me to see my progress. If I strive to move forward one small step at a time, I can overcome any obstacle.”
