One step at a time

One step at a time

How can I just focus on my next best step? I struggle to think of each decision versus wanting to focus only on the future. I have this idea in my head of what I want my life to look like and where I would like my path to go. So much so though, that I can get stuck in indecision worrying about making the right or even the wrong decisions. I can see, and even set, those big picture goals, but I know that sometimes life surprises me with something even better than I planned. I love the Frozen 2 song, “The Next Right Thing.” “Take a step, step again. It is all that I can do,” the song sings. I know in my head that courage is taking those steps in spite of, not in the absence of fear, but knowing and believing are two different things. I do like where my life is headed, and maybe that is why I worry about making a mistake since I also know what it feels like to be lost in your own life and unsure of how to make things right. I ask for God, Spirit, and Universe to guide me towards choices and actions that reflect my highest and best self. It is a journey, that’s for sure. I constantly remind myself to enjoy the ride, not only the destination, but it is hard. I read a quote by Henry Ford who stated, “Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.” Life feels like it goes by so quickly, but really it is one day to live, one choice to make, that one step at a time. When I am struggling and feeling unsure, how can I remind myself that everything gets done one step at a time?

All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.

While it is easy to focus on the negative aspects of life, I choose to continue looking for the good in people and in the world around me, and I want to share why they do what they do. I am the proud mother of three adult daughters and live in the Chicago area. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education field since 2001, and I write books when the inspiration comes.
