It’s the little victories of life, that connect like boxcars in a train, all steaming down the track to the ultimate VICTORY.

During your daily walk, try to be mindful of the little victories every day!

Celebrate them!

And then add some more, and then add some more, and then we will reach the ultimate VICTORY!

Eric Lee Gardner

Play: One Little VICTORY!


A certain measure of innocence
Willing to appear naive
A certain degree of imagination
A measure of make-believe

A certain degree of surrender
To the forces of light and heat
A shot of satisfaction
In a willingness to risk defeat

Celebrate the moment
As it turns into one more
Another chance at victory
Another chance to score

The measure of the moment
Is a difference of degree
Just one little victory
A spirit breaking free
One little victory
The greatest act can be
One little victory

A certain measure of righteousness
A certain amount of force
A certain degree of determination
Daring on a different course

A certain amount of resistance
To the forces of the light and love
A certain measure of tolerance
A willingness to rise above
