Next steps can mean many things to many people. Next steps are not always bad, nor are they always good. Next steps can have a challenge or can be simple.
Everyone has to take the next step…
I remember when I was in third grade, and most all my friends were sliding down a hill in the winter. I didn't say “sledding,” I said “sliding.” There’s a huge difference. Sledding is sitting on a sled, board, garbage bag, or other flat object and flying down a hill. Sliding is an altogether different ballgame.
My point - not all steps in life turn out like you think.
Sometimes, you fall flat on your face.
Sometimes, you look ridiculous.
Sometimes, you sit there dazed that your choice caused this problem.
Sometimes, that step we took makes us look like a genius.
Sometimes, you wonder why, in the world, you took that step.
Sometimes, you figure out a better way, for the next step.
Sometimes, you impact someone else, in a huge way, because of the last step.
Sometimes, you are very grateful that you took that step.
Sometimes, that step really hurt you.
Sometimes, that step really helped you.
Thoughts: Don’t sit in fear, take the next step.
Question: What step are you about to take?
