Yesterday? Yesterday was a moment for reflection. A moment that taught me so much about myself. A moment that questioned where I am in this gift called life, this new journey I began. But I have been standing still, too afraid to take a single step. Too many excuses and justifications as to why I am here, why I cannot step forward.
Yes it has been hard, it has been difficult, it has been tough! And it is so much easier to stay right where I am. Actually it is great, right where I am, right here, right now!
And tomorrow? Tomorrow I will still be here, right here, right where I was yesterday! And the day after? And the day after that? And next week? And next year? Life will move on but I will still be here, right here. Life is not going to come to me, I need to go out and grasp life before it slips away. Before I become a distant memory. Before I am forgotten. Before I forget how to live.
Because what happened to My life! My Way? My dream of conquering the world one step at a time? One smile at a time? And how can I ever hope to inspire the young people I work with when I cannot do anything to inspire myself? How can I encourage young people to take steps into the unknown when I myself are unable to?
And so today? Today I woke up and thought – let’s begin again.
And tomorrow? Tomorrow I will smile and tell the story of the steps I took today…….
