Life happens one step at a time.
Some steps are big and scary. Some are joyous. Some are small, simple things that we never seem to have time for. But all steps have to happen, one way or another.
I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since I was six. I would sneak onto the family computer, load up the big blue DOS writing screen, and start pecking away at my first tiny masterpiece. The protagonist was a heroic dog. The victim, a poor panda bear caught in a river, unable to swim. All appeared lost, the end was nigh, the river a swirling chaos of destruction. Until – at the last moment! – the heroic dog leapt into the river and rescued the panda bear from certain doom.
I thought it was pretty good. I was pretty pleased with myself. That was my first step.
Many years later, in what feels like another lifetime, I continue to place one foot in front of the other. Writing books is all I’ve ever wanted to do. It’s also the hardest thing I’ve ever done. There is an unbelievable chasm between that first word, bursting with limitless potential, and the final exhausted click of a button that means the formatting is done, the words are set, the endless revisions are at an end, and the printer stands ready. Uploaded. Ready to go. Now the real work begins.
Can you relate? Are you in the midst of a daunting project, or a dream that seems to draw back, the closer you get? Life is full of mystery, bursting with potential, but only if we get up and do something with it. Find who you are, find what you’re designed to be and do. Find the thing you have to do. And then don’t let go.
