A Thousand Miles

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. — Chinese Proverb

Last week’s post sent me into my own kind of time and space continuum, reflecting on all that has occurred and changed in the span of one year; my job to a certain degree, my car, where I live and so much more, including how I approach things and what I find important to me now. Feeling like I’ve traveled a thousand miles since then, I’ve realized it’s true, it all began with a single step; literally putting one foot in front of the other and often they were baby-steps.

After taking so many steps, it became apparent that the road isn’t always a straight course. Sometimes, even a path with heart gets side-tracked by unexpected twists and turns. At times, it’s necessary to take drastic measures to get to where you need to be. But in doing so, you increase the possibility of opening the doors to where the power of your soul exits. There are no limits to what can be achieved when you tap into the power of your soul. You discover that with a little perseverance, that which once seemed insurmountable, is not. I’ve learned to Let Go, a lot.

I’ve also learned that anything is possible when you are true to yourself and your beliefs.

People have tremendous power to change their conditions.

Life truly is an adventure and every adventure begins with one single step, forward.

    Yes, Karen. This is all so true. The first photo you used moves me…I use a similar (if not the same one) photo as a title slide to a power point to one of the songs we sing in church. Anyhow, thanks for sharing…you’ve come a long way, I know. Hugs and love from this rainy ol’ Cali. XOXO

    You don”t know how many times through the course of the year that the song from the Rudolph Christmas special pops in my head, “Put one foot in front of the other and soon you’ll be walking across the floooooor.” Its about getting started and keeping moving. It fits in running and it fits with (your) baby steps. Conrats on finding the prudent steps to take.

    How true Karen. For me, life has become a “one step at at time” adventure. Sometimes it gets a little rocky and other times it is purely exhilharating. I just have to strap on my seat belt and enjoy each day as it comes.
