My grandbaby just took his first few steps the other day. It is so much fun to see him take those steps, but so scary to see him fall. Yet, even tho he falls, he still picks himself up and and keeps on trying. I feel that is how I am too-- I take steps in a new direction and sometimes I make progress, but often I fall on my bum. It takes courage to keep on trying when you are just learning how to go in a new direction! The key to it all is to keep on stepping-- even tho it seems difficult or even a bit painful at times. When you KNOW it is something you have to do, when you know you have some place to go, you just have to keep on going-- keep on stepping-- and keep on picking up when you fall. In time, you will be running, and in hindsight, you may even wonder what all the fuss was about. I wish you the best on your new steps on whatever new path you may be walking.
