But it has its virtues.
The way we handle hard times can be transformative.
We constantly look for an end to our difficulties that is why adversity seems to never end.
Recognizing progress makes difficult days when nothing seems to go right better.
Surviving the last few hours – progress.
Coming up with a plan of action – that deserves a pat on the back.
Waking up the next day and attacking your problem anew – progress we often fail to recognize.
It’s progress that allows us to deal with adversity.
Measuring progress transforms us from poor victim to handler of life’s ups and downs.
