I came across this quote the other day:
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase.
Just take the first step.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
It seems to be fitting advice for me right now. I feel as if I have so much I want to accomplish and I am getting pulled in so many directions and I feel so overwhelmed by it all and I don’t know where to start and how to focus. I find myself falling prey of analysis paralysis trying to have the answer to it all and beating myself up because I don’t have the answers. It is my analytical nature to be this way. But I need to remind myself that I don’t need the answer to it all, I just need to have a direction to move in and the path will become apparent. Some pieces of the puzzle will fit into place, some may need a little coaxing and others I may find do not fit at all….but I will never know unless I start.
But how do you start? Do you take the path of least resistance, the path that is the most challenging, the one most exciting? I have decided that my first step should be to start by removing things from my life that don’t make me happy and work on strengthening the things that do make me happy. Sounds like time for a list…..
