Inner Journey: ONE STEP AT A TIME
“What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.”
— Antoine De Saint-Exupery
Does the prospect of changing and growing seem monumental to you? Just too much to tackle?
Then consider this approach. Take a simple step of affirming your openness to experience more or something new. Or a different first step might be to let go of judgment by embracing the neutral. Begin to see the people, activities and things around you as neither good nor bad.
A journey is made of many small steps. Don’t focus on a far-off destination if you’re not clear how to get there. Build a foundation that is solid for you. We get to new places one step at a time.
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
“One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.”
— John Wanamaker

Daily Tarot: The Wheel of Fortune
You may have made careful plans or scheduled everything to perfection, but there are too many variables today to allow most of your plans to play out. Things may come up, one after another, and make this a scattered day. This is temporary and probably will have little impact on tomorrow, so just flow with it best you can and don’t let the instability bother you.
