step by step by step by step by step by step

step-by-step203

The things I’m most proud of took many baby steps to get to the final moment of fist-pump victory.

Even the little ones, like when we stick up for someone who can’t defend themselves or politely walk away from toxic situations, add up to something big.  They’re the sum of who we are.

Whether it’s writing a book, preparing for an art show, training for a race, saving money or letting go of a grudge. Taking a thousand steps may not be possible, but taking one step a thousand times is. Happy journey, y’all.

    Sometimes a “like” just isn’t enough. Like now. Need a “so good” or an “edifying” button.
