Confucius said “Every journey begins with a single step”.
Let’s think about that for a second. EVERY journey begins with a single step.
Our lives are filled with many steps, and they are all different journeys. We take detours always, but everything ends in the same general goal, our happiness. My happiness comes in many different forms. Being time with my friends and family, time on the bike, or being behind the camera trying to get that one picture I really wanted to see.
Our minds play tricks on us and tell us that our journeys end more prematurely that they do. There is a confusion in where we understand the finish line is, and sometimes we take the easy option. We ignore our happiness and the things that make us happy. Only to find out later that we MUST take that “first step” again to take back the control of our lives and our happiness.
This last few months have been my “first step”.
Getting into University, getting back on the bike, and getting back the control of my life have been the things I needed to accomplish. They are all now all done and squared away.
I just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and keep my eyes up and looking forward to a new beginning.
