Sometimes we have to take the step of cleaning out a bit of old stuff in our lives to make room for new ideas, new opportunities, and new ways of seeing things. Reading the following quote yesterday resonated with Virginia, maybe contemplating it will touch your heart today, too…
“Yearning for a new way will not produce it. Only ending the old way can do that. You cannot hold onto the old all the while declaring that you want something new. The old will defy the new; the old will deny the new; the old will decry the new. There is only one way to bring in the new. You must make room for it.” Neale Donald Walsch
My sis sent another quote yesterday that also resonated. Sometimes we get so overwhelmed with big picture challenges and uncertainties we give up before trying. Here’s to moving along – step by step – even if we can’t know for certain where the path will take us.
“You don’t need to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
grace, peace & first steps
