While we wait, life happens all around us. Even in a pandemic, it goes on in some way. We can watch other people being happy. We can watch other people being successful. We can watch other people have the lives we wish we could have while we are waiting and hoping it will just happen. But nothing will change unless we take the first step towards making it happen.
Figure out those things you can change and those you can’t and then stop waiting and start doing. Envision the life you want for yourself then map out the steps you need to take to get there. Have the humility to look deep within yourself and ask what are the things you need to do in order to move forward even if it means that you have to take a step backwards to do so. There is no shame in starting over. Only wisdom in recognizing where you may need help in order to get there. Life is too short hold your breath and wait for things to happen or for someone else to make things happen for you. Whatever your dreams, ambitions or goals find a way to take the first step and then just keep stepping over, around, under or through the things that get in your way. Ask yourself each day how can I continue to move forward – then remember even baby steps count!
