Wise Words for Today

Spiritual…..regression is gradual; it is a product of a negative pattern. A positive pattern requires intention and discipline and usually the help of friends. A negative pattern most often is characterized by ease. It requires loss of focus, neglect of discipline, and withdrawal from helpful friends. Structure and accountability empower people, enabling them to practice what makes them successful. Ease comes naturally; you don’t need to practice it. You just drift into it. Some would call ease our default position, the one to which we naturally return when we stop short of forming a new habit.
