Little Next Steps 1



Climbing Bluff Knoll Albany, Western Australia with my daughter Tayla. A massive effort and I needed to take it a step at a time.

Thankful for little steps…

Last month we looked at the topic of ‘reinvention’ but as I looked up the word on my computer thesaurus, there were no other synonyms for this word.  I then looked up the word ‘invention’ and it presented me with words like creation and discovery.

I believe there are aspects of our self, past dreams and passions that can be rediscovered, restored and refashioned for our future – and this can be a very positive decision and path, particularly if we have totally lost a sense of true-self.

But you know what I have discovered from my experience – is that rediscovery, reinvention, restoration is not achieved in one giant step…

…but rather lots and lots of little steps.

This is a good thing because a ‘little step’ gives me confidence, courage, and helps me be brave for the next little step, and the next little step and the next…

Each step I take builds muscle and capacity for the whole journey.

So, let’s be thankful for the little steps in our path of rediscovery, recreation, restoration and reinvention.
