Take The First Step – Don’t Put It Off!
The First Step…Towards any Change is Always the Hardest!
WE KNOW THIS ALREADY!
It does not matter how small the step may be….and making the decision may be the first step, but making that decision is important!
In the Abraham Hicks teachings, they encourage people to “make more decisions in every day…because a decision is a summoning of LIFE” – they also remind us that “we’ll never get it done, and we can never get it wrong”. What a wonderful thought! It speaks to the truth that we are eternal, consistently learning, and that the choices made in one experience will then lead us to other choices – often different and clearer choices as we move along.
We often hold back from making choices for change because we sense a fear of what that change may require from us…and we wonder if we really have the “WILL” to follow through. We question if we can really get to the other side? No one likes to fail, and yet it is a natural part of life. If we could remember back to when we were first learning to walk, that desire within us pushed us to keep trying until we got it. We did NOT just stand up and walk, but with a little encouragement from our parents, we kept making the effort. That’s the Key! And this is a REMINDER…. Make the Effort: Find the people that will support you, dream the dream, open your heart, take the risk, keep faith, expect the best, and take the step – no matter how small!
For me, it seems these days all my steps are small. Smaller than I would like them to be, however I will never relinquish the intent to move forward, and WILL always do my best to keep going even when it feels like the change isn’t happening at the rate that I would like it to occur. I encourage all to do the same.
May these words from Bette Midlers song “THE ROSE” serve as a reminder and springboard towards any step….they’ve always inspire me!
It’s the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It’s the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It’s the one who won’t be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin’
That never learns to live.
