I tried my first “real” outside walk without a crutch on New Years day and focusing "step-step-step" reminded me of wise words said to me seven years ago while waiting for major serious surgery. I said I’m doing all the “right” things and nothing makes me feel “better” (not anxious). She answered, you’re right, nothing will make you feel “better”; you just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other, until you get to the other side.
My past few years have been challenging and focusing on step-step-step now I thought - keep going, even when it’s tough... Until you get to the other side. A good reminder! The photo is me walking in my crazy fuzzy leggings and Christmas socks -- and my shadow is big in the background!
“When life feels overwhelming and nothing can make it better at that moment, just “keep putting one foot in front of the other until you get to the other side”.... Step, step, step.... Keep stepping. Step, step, step... Hear it in your head; step, step, step........."
