When your priorities are right, even the most mundane activity will get done. Admitting to yourself that the things/activities you do matter will help make doing what you are doing (even when hard) bearable. Find the joy in each moment you are in.
Finding Joy in the Simple. Staying in bed a little longer on a Saturday, listening to the laughter of kids playing, knowing that the work that is before you is not what rules your life as long as you are constantly looking to the finish line and Christ.
