You make the path by walking...
So said Antonio Machado in the excerpt from one of his poems, translated into English. "There is no path. You make the path by walking." I shared this with someone in my office today who was waiting 'until' to take action. She was stuck in a cycle of not feeling good about herself, being unmotivated, not being proactive, etc. It was an endless loop of inertia.
I told her she would be waiting a long time if she was waiting to feel differently inside before she took some action. Walk. Make the path. Don't wait for it to be drawn out on a map, with a guide to carry your bags and hand you water. Just go.
I know she is completely capable of it. We all are. ... If only that first step weren't such a doozy.
Wishing you all the best on your journey,
