Step by step in faith

In a world of deadlines and smart goals we tend to get lost in the structure. Usually one gets lost in the chaos but I lose myself when I try to control everything, organize everything, perfect everything (to my OCD levels), even the things that I cannot control- like what the future holds, how long it will take to reach a goal, other people’s emotions and reactions and acts of God. This caused me endless nights and days of anxiety.
I’m glad you guys never got to see that side of me… I could say I wish I never had to either. But through my journey I have learnt that you don’t have to be able to see every step in order to climb the staircase. Sometimes, you just have to take the first step… and see where it leads.
Putting one foot in front of the other wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Following my mealplan, showing up for workouts, do what I was told, asking, learning and taking direction came as a pleasant relief as I no longer had to think and guess too much. It was just a matter of DOING it. It wasn’t easy- it was new to me which made it uncomfortable at first but the more I did what was uncomfortable, the more I got used to it.
Sometimes we give up too soon. We take those first few steps and think wow I can do this, but soon enough we feel that it’s just way too hard… not realizing how close to the top you really are. And just when you think its getting hard, you find yourself all by your lonesome. See, you may have been quite a bunch of eager beavers starting out, but when the tough gets going, the friends get going… and you’re climbing alone. Can you handle the next few steps on your own? Keep going! Soon you will enjoy the amazing feeling of accomplishment and the breathtaking views from the top. Don’t feel guilty or bad for the ones who turned around. Love the journey and share it with them- who knows, you might just inspire them to try again. Sometimes our journey is not just about us.
When you see someone contemplating on the staircase, take their hand and lead the way.
