I wanted to share something I wrote last week during my morning writing. I hope it encourages you to keep going.

Written on the morning of March 2, 2023

Today I am responsible for one small step forward.

I am not responsible for a giant leap.

Nor do I plan on moving backward.

My only aim is to move forward.

I will not underestimate myself.

I am capable of a great many things.

For that which I am not capable, I am capable of learning and getting better.

Either way, I will not lose sight of the fact that I am capable.

A Moment's Worth of Courage

I will not let fear stop me from getting started.

Fear fades quickly once the task is underway.

You don’t need a day’s worth of courage, only a moment’s worth.

I can. I will. 

I have already made the decision.

The outcome has been determined.

I am moving forward.

Creating my future one small step at a time.

"We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down." -Eleanor Roosevelt

"One step at a time is all it takes to get you there." -Emily Dickinson
