Following Our Dreams, One Step at a Time.

Often we are stuck in our lives because we are afraid to take action towards a dream.   There is a wonderful quote by Confucius (551-479 BCE),

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.”

It seems as long as recorded history we, as a race of human beings, have often been stuck, unable to move into action for fear of not being successful.    Yet the evidence of so many success stories share one thing in common.  They were willing to fail over and over.   It is actually only when we see “failure” as an opportunity instead; we finally give ourselves permission to move forward.

Recently I have embarked on a writing adventure that has been one of the hardest things I have done in a long time.   Along the way I have been learning many things.  I have made many mistakes, and yet it has been one of the most fulfilling and creative things I have done since giving birth to my sons.

I find over and over when I am willing to take action despite the fear there is a flow that begins to happen.  It is almost as if God is waiting for us to make the first move and then wow; divine magic happens!  Our world seems to open up and then we are guided along the way, one step at a time.   When we are willing to make each step count, and continue to move no matter what the obstacles or challenges, we succeed.

Follow your dreams!  Take one step today!   Remember it does not matter how big or small the step is, so long as you are willing to take it!

    This is so true and you have been an awesome example for me.
    I too have found that when we move through fear we discover the truth of who we are.
    The hardest part is being gentle with ourselves.
    Caring for ourselves physically,emotionally, mentally and spiritually will not take from anyone but instead replenishes our souls so that all the good stuff can overflow into the lives of anyone we encounter.We talk about it and think about it but actually doing it takes quite an act of faith. Everyone should give it a try at least once.Once the lesson is learned we find the flow you speak of and the struggle is gone.
    Thanks for following your dream,facing your fears and lighting the way for others.
    Love ya!

    • Thank you dear Esther

      If I am an example for others it is because people like yourself are a reflection of courage and willingness that inspires me to stay on this amazing journey. Thanks for taking the to write in.

      Blessings Joyce
