I found this picture and my mind immediately related it to working out. But then I realized it applies to all areas of life so I wanted to share it here.

Being on a budget is not easy.
Telling your friends you can’t do something because “it’s not in the budget” is not easy.
Giving up immediate gratification is not easy.
Seeing others with things you wish you could have is not easy.

Maybe what’s easiest isn’t always what’s best for us.
