Happiness is in small victories! It is hard to change familiar habits, and it feels impossible to turn around when you are far down a given path. But the surest way to have real victory, be it great or small, is to choose something different. To choose progress, growth, and security is not comfortable. It requires dedication. It requires you to surround yourself with those who will advocate for you to succeed, support your goals, and befriend you when it is needed. The LegUp Program champions this belief every day. It is more than our goal to end homelessness for those entrenched in it and at risk for it, it is our mission and our joy!
This week our clients began a journey, and took a step forward into their goals, building change in their lives. They came and attended classes, and this week attained a measure of freedom. We believe in them, and are already so proud of them! Week two, here we come!
“The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates
