H is for Hard By The Yard

"Life is hard by the yard, but by the inch it's a cinch."
This quote is one of my main motos for my life.  It has been one that I try to keep in the back of my mind always for those times when I need a friendly reminder to chill out.
I know there have been so many times where I have felt like a challenge or trial was just too much for me to handle. I tend to think of everything all at once and start to worry about everything and in turn I start to think I can't handle it. It can become very overwhelming the longer I let myself think about what might happen or what I should do.
But when I put things into perspective and take it a day at a time, I find that I am able to think more clearly and I feel more at peace with my different circumstances. But I especially feel closer to my Heavenly Father. It's putting faith in him and letting go of my fear daily that helps me come closer to him.
Life doesn't have to be hard. It's only hard when we think of everything all at once, but when we take it a day at a time, it's easy.
"Life is hard by the yard, but by the inch it's a cinch."
