We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

One step forward

Take one little step forward. Don’t worry about whether it’s perfect, or what other people will think, or why you didn’t do it sooner. Just take that one little step. And notice how good, how right it feels.

Take that one little step forward, and then take another. Suddenly, momentum is on your side. Yes, new and difficult challenges will surely arise, now that you’re moving forward. As you climb higher, the terrain will likely become steeper and more rugged.

Yet whatever you’re able to reach, you’re also able to handle. With each step forward, you build the strength and the confidence to take the next step.

Right now is the time to take that next little step forward, without hesitation, with no worries or complaints or regrets. And you’ll quickly be so very thankful that you did.

— Ralph Marston
