Chapter 7, Page 25, Book 20

Focus on the step in front of you, not the whole staircase

July 25th - one step at a time

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.

Martin Luther King

We need to take life one step at a time, one day at time so it doesn’t get too overwhelming.  Taken as a whole. it can get pretty scary.  There are so many unknowns out there and thats where faith comes in.  One step at a time, well get us there.  

If we made it through yesterday, we should make it through today just fine.  Taking little steps to doing so makes it all easier to do.  Yesterday I took a step, today Ill take another and before we know it tomorrow will be here.  None of knows what tomorrow may bring our way, so we need to enjoy today.

When we focus on the first stair step, we see what today is.  It may not be the best there is but even though every day may not be good there is something good to be found in every day.  If you dont take that step youre not going to find it.  

What matters most is knowing the direction you want to head, even if you aren't clear on a specific end point destination. Once you set your direction then you think about moving toward your goals.  Some times success is simply putting one foot in front of another and making it through another day.  

We can only live life in the present moment and to do that takes feeling good about what we are doing with our time. This hour, this moment. Remember you dont have to see the whole staircase.  Just the next step.  

Dont be afraid to take it.

Be willing to take the first step , no matter how small it is.  Concentrate on the fact that you are willing to learn.  Absolute miracles will happen.

Louise Hay

Just keep taking those steps in the direction you think you should be going and just keep moving :)

Martin Luther King

He was a great man and wanted peace didn't he? Wonder what he would think of things today?

Somedays watching the news results in me feeling so vulnerable ... I just want to hunker down in a corner. (LOL) Even tho' my destination may not be crystal clear, yes. It's critical to keep moving. Even, as Martha said, if those are baby steps.

I have never read that quote from King, it is so impressive to me as I continue to think about it. I liked the entry, but that quote just hit me right.
