Whoever said, “hard work builds character” may have been a genius…

The work I did today, I did the hard way…rake, shovel, and bucket.
I quickly appreciated that I was able to do it. I have two strong arms, one good shoulder, one good knee, and a pretty good back.
I have always believed in working smarter not harder (funny since I never educated myself), but today I buckled down and did something hard for a few hours.
I’m not sure anyone of you could tell what I did unless you have been here recently, hell I don’t think before and after pics would have made you understand (besides I have no camera right now)….but for those that have been here recently and for me, the difference is easily seen.
I had to be careful not to look around too much or I would start seeing all the work that is still to be done. I also had to be careful not to think too much because my mind can be a dark and scary place at times.

I still have a long way to go, but what I did today did make a difference…for me.
