The Way Becomes Clear

Oftentimes on the path to your dreams, the way isn’t clear. There are no markers—nothing to orient you. Even though you can see where you’re headed—you have a clear idea of your dream—the path itself isn’t in sharp focus.

When I took this photo on February 20, 2014, I thought about that, about how, on the journey to my dream, there is no map and there’s nothing I can program into my GPS system. As I move forward, I know I’m making it up as I go along.  Although I know what I’m aiming for, I’m not always sure what to do. The steps aren’t always clear and sometimes—most times, it seems!—I’m just guessing when I take the next step.

When this happens, I ask myself what’s the logical and reasonable thing I can do to get where I want to go. Also, I listen for urgings from my gut instinct. If those two answers are at odds, I try to be brave enough to go with my gut instinct. It has access to an Intelligence that our logical reasonable minds do not.

Then I take that next step. And the next one, and the one after that, and the one after that….

Soon the way does become clearer. Here’s a picture I took yesterday, May 14, 2014, of the same scene:

The moral of the story: Take the next step, no matter what!

Your homework today is to take the next step! Whether you use logic and reason or gut instincts to guide your steps, keep moving forward, no matter what. Remember to break your steps into smaller pieces and even tinier increments and keep that forward momentum going! Take the next step!

You can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
