Putting The Right Foot Forward...

Remember as a child, when you were just crawling around on the ground? But you see all these people that seem bigger than you... walking around. Doing what they want, when they want, and getting there all by themselves. They have a vantage point you don't because they're standing so tall... just walking right along. So you want to do it too. You find something to prop yourself up with—anything—and just try it. Whoa! A little wobbly and uneasy... but here we go! Then...


Right back down on the ground. But you don't give up. You know it's possible. You've seen it done. It's your birthright. So you keep trying. You lift up your head and keep your eye on the target. On where you want to go. And you keep getting up when you fall. And you're surrounded by people who let you know you can do it. That this is something you can accomplish!

Sometimes when you take that first step, it's just because you have to. But as long as you put the right foot forward... and keep focused on your intentions... you won't have to look down at the ground anymore...


  1. It sounds like you are standing at a crossroads in your life. As are many of us. Do we try and risk falling? Or do we continue to crawl and risk never knowing what it feels like to run ...

    I hope your path brings you to walking. To running. To flying.

    Or maybe I'm just putting my own feelings into your post. Because I too stand at a certain crossroad ... trying to decide whether to crawl, or whether to stand.

    Bless you this weekend. :=}

  2. Clytie,

    I've found that the more uncomfortable decision is usually the right one!

  4. I have to agree with you Michelle. The more comfortable we get in our lives the more complaisant we become.
    Status Qua is not always a good thing.
