Easier in the long run

It may be a difficult challenge to find a way to let go of your anxieties. Yet it is far easier than allowing those anxieties to continue poisoning your spirit as they multiply upon themselves.

You may have trouble letting go of your need to continually judge others. Doing so, however, will be easier than having to deal with the growing burdens that those judgments impose upon your own life.

It can certainly be difficult to tune out all of life’s distractions in order to focus your energy on what truly matters. Yet it is much easier than living with the emptiness of a life without direction.

What may not initially seem the easiest path can often turn out to be so. The sooner and more sincerely you deal with life’s challenges, the easier you make things for yourself in the long run.

There is always a temptation to take the easiest way out at the moment. By not giving in to that temptation, you set yourself up to enjoy an easier, more fulfilling way forward as time goes on.

Look down the road and make your choices based on what is best in terms of the big picture of your life. By so doing, you can build a life that continues to get better.
