"Yesterday was difficult for awhile. Occasionally, thoughts such as is this worth it...do I want to continue crossed my mind. I think it's important that at those times my thoughts need to be more in the line of: I'll get through this. It will pass. The pleasant, painless times are easy. It's the uncomfortable times that need my strength and conviction."
