"When in doubt, just take the next small step."
This was another quote among those sent by a friend. How many times have I doubted and feared to take the next small step? Too many. Even knowing that taking a step, any step, would make me feel better, I don't do it.
Sometimes it's because I don't know what that step is. Sometimes it's because I fear the consequences of that step. And sometimes it's just because I'm lazy. Whatever the reasons, though, failing to take that step never solves a problem or fixes anything.
Action has a way of making us feel more in control when we feel our world spinning out of control. As the quote says, it doesn't have to be a big step or action. A small one will do.
So, for today, I am grateful for small steps.
