” A Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. ”
Fuckin love that quote….. So inspiring. It really is true. Your journey no matter how long or short…begins with that first step. The first decision to actually do something.
But…am I the only one who wonders where the rest of it is ?? You know…the meat and potatoes of it . The realistic, real world portion..
” A Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Tie those laces tight, because no doubt you will be retracing your steps at least a dozen times before getting it right! ”
” A Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Might be a good idea to wear a mouth guard for when you trip and fall flat on your face. ”
I’m not trying to be a downer here. But more so, trying to paint a picture. We all want to accomplish something, over come something, become something. But sometimes …just making that decision to start isn’t really, truly the hard part. So many times we hear.. ” Admitting you need help” , ” Accepting you have a problem” …that’s the hardest part.
Is it really ??
Because I’m thinking that the 10th, 11th, 12th time around the same god damn block…..admitting that you couldn’t do what you set out to. THAT’S the HARD part !
Going under the knife to make my stomach smaller to lose weight. Do you think that was my ” beginning” ? My first ” single step”? HA ! …..Yea….No.
We all have our demons. They never go away. They ride within us like another organ of the body….beat as strong as the heart that pumps our blood.
BUT… not giving up. That’s what separates the strong from the weak. Picking ourselves up to take another step, to start the journey all over again. Those are the steps that define us. Not letting them win…
Dust yourself off, tie those laces tight …and BELIEVE that the 13th time around that old block….will be exactly what you’ve dreamt it to be ! Will it be easy ? …Hell NO! …But nothing that is worth anything ever is .
