Courage, without fear, bravery against odds
Discouraged, afraid, giving up without a battle
Encouraged, full of spirit, ready to go

What marks your progress with your goals
For a New Year of personal improvement
Easiest to give up, harder to stay the course?

Life is reflected in its smallest increments
In our daily efforts to overcome our apathy
And take control of our individual destiny

“Never, never, never give up” said Churchill
Against all odds, they fought on to victory
Can we demand any less of ourselves?


  1. I finally got caught up with your musings. I really do enjoy yur blog, Lin. I'm going toi see if I can figure out how to leave a comment. If I get it under my belt, I'll talk to you more later.

  2. I really enjoyed this. I also want to thank you for the comment on my blog about parenting, and how important it is. I feel I am in need of constant reminders as I raise my 3 boys. I do worry about the kind of mother I am, and the kind of men my children will become.
