Affirmation Mondays 320 ~ Every journey begins with a single step…

One simple step is all it takes…

“Every journey begins with a single step.”

Our lives are one great journey. Does that statement cause a bit of anxiety and overwhelm? I know it does for me. Taken as an all-encompassing declaration like that it’s just a lot.

I mean, how often do you feel like your particular journey is leading nowhere in particular, or is veering wildly off-course, or has ground to a dead halt? Or like your journey has somehow failed, or worse, failed before even beginning – whatever that’s supposed to look like?

Add to that the constant comparisons, the imposter syndromes, the fears of lacking or not measuring up to some glorified “ideal” and it can feel basically impossible to do anything, much less move on this journey called life.

Here’s the thing, though, it doesn’t have to be this way. You don’t have to be paralyzed by fear or hopelessness, or even uncertainty. There is a way to do you and move forward.

The secret is by simply taking a step, any step.

Your life is exactly that – YOURS. You get to decided just how fast or slow you move along it’s winding paths. You get to take baby step, giant leaps, twirls, bounces, and anything else your heart desires.

I’m actually taking a rather big leap right now with my career, but I’m doing it in my way, on my time-line. Step by step as I see fit. Others might judge or see me as lacking in one way or another, but you know what, I don’t care. That’s on them and has nothing to do with me. So long as I am taking at least a single step each day, I know I’m on my own right path.

The next part of your journey can also begin right now, with a single step. That step could be a simple thought, a dream written down, a class signed up for, a goal planned, etc. Each step, no matter how big or how small, will help to get you further along. Your life, your journey, is in your hands. Do with it what you will, but keep taking those simple steps. I can’t wait to see where you end up!
