One step at a time

Many of us have goals and things we want to accomplish in this life. However, most of the time we are overwhelmed with our day to day responsibilities including work, life, relationships, etc. Lately, I have been learning the importance of celebrating small victories and small steps. When we try to always focus on the bigger picture, sometimes it will seem like we are never doing enough or reaching our ultimate goal. Break it into small steps. Take one step at a time. Every step forward counts towards the bigger goal. When you take small steps eventually you will get where you want to go. It doesn't matter where you came from or where you are going. All that matters is right now. This step. This moment. This moment is all we really have because none of us know the future. I heard a saying once by Lao Tzu that said, “If you are depressed you are living in the past, if you are anxious you are living in the future, if you are at peace you are living in the present.” Your happiness is right now. Focus on the present. Just take a single step.
