Well that is one high-quality reminder from the man, Abraham Lincoln, himself! Life can be scary when we think too much in the “big picture.” Thankfully – this quote helps us break down life into something a bit more manageable. And just like with any situation that feels too heavy to carry with our own two hands, we take it one handful, one step, and one day, at a time.
We do this for the hard things, but ALSO for the good! While dreams are exciting and inspiring, they too can seem discouraging and distant when we look at them on a grand scale.
So – what can we use for armor against these future-fears? How about using a shield made of the unbreakable, unshakable NOW? That’s right, we are talking about the present moment! This is a one-day-at-a-time magical shield available for you to pick up and improve the quality of your quest at any time…We’ll take it!
If we take a moment to really think about it, we’re going to quest through life either way, and the future happens one moment at a time…so why shouldn’t we have a say in how it shakes out?
