Given the challenges of late, I am reminded that obstacles and turbulent waters are a norm for everyone; how one reacts differentiates an individual from another.
Small ships sailing across the oceans seem on the surface to be insignificant, but ... braving the waves not only allows a ship of any size to sail on, but actually alters the oceans.
Individual efforts and the timeliness of them may feel trivial, and yet the ripples made upon the world is immeasurable. Perhaps then challenges encountered require the conviction to focus on small tasks.
Each achievement then, regardless of scale or impact, aids in building forward momentum; building and renewing an energy towards greater accomplishments.
