Simply Start Walking

“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

Difficult Path - 100PedalsHaving 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.
