“The mountain of life cannot be climbed by knowing the path the entire way. Sometimes we have to simply start walking.” ~ D.C., Behind the Dumpster
Having the courage to begin a journey without being assured of the final outcome is always one of life’s bigger challenges. What usually prevents people from taking this step is fear, doubt, worry, anxiety — negative emotions that stifle opportunity.
Everyday I remind myself I am on a journey. I am on a path that has been specifically designed for me. If I were to try to predict, understand or know exactly how it is going to go or where it will end up, I will likely go nowhere fast as I spend more time analyzing my options and my course rather than simply moving.
Trusting that the path I am on will lead to a great outcome are positive, empowering and inspiring way emotions to take on a journey. Every experience is a lesson. Every adversity is an opportunity. And, every challenge will be a future story to inspire and teach others.
Living my life in quiet confidence that I am on a cool, unique, exciting, and challenging adventure is how I embrace my path and keep moving forward. I encourage you to trust your path and start walking.
