Reminiscing on the trip has me wondering if we are really afraid of missteps or are we afraid of not keeping up with others along the journey? We often hear the saying one step forward and two steps back. What if we could see the ‘steps back’ as providing us another vantage point on our journey to adjust how we get to our destination rather than seeing it as stopping us from our destination. What if we began to step forward, and yes sometimes backwards, realizing EACH step serves a purpose. Each step allows us an opportunity to grow, meet new people, and affirm if we are on the path we are excited about, the path we are passionate about, the path that makes us feel alive.
For the next week I invite you to step into living your best life by:
Going for it regardless if others say you can’t or shouldn’t do it as that is their fear. Go for what makes you feel alive. Go for what puts a huge smile on your face. Go for what makes you want to jump out of bed and start your day.
Taking YOUR time as whether you feel the need to crawl, tip toe, walk, hop, skip, jump, or run, the journey is where love lives, where laughter happens, and where memories are created to share once you’ve reached the destination.
Mostly my wish for you this week is to realize each step you take is a step closer to living your best life whether it be a success or a perceived set-back as each one allows you the opportunity to create your path.
Until next time, wishing your stepping stones bringing you down a path allowing in deeper love, laughter, and happiness.

“When it’s obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.”
“The thing I always tell my audiences all the time is that I’m just two steps ahead of you on a good day. And I might be two steps behind you on a bad day.”
