There are inevitably circumstances in this life that we cannot change. People will come and go, good things will come, bad things also. Much of our lives is out of our control. However, the amount of effort that we give is under our control. Regardless of who’s watching or who isn’t, rain or shine, sleet or snow, hot or cold, our goals should stay constant. The destination remains the same. Only the roads we take to get there change. We are responsible for choosing whether to continue our journey. Some times will be easier than others, and some times will be harder than others, but the choice to persevere is a testament only to our character and determination.
