baby steps......

I firmly believe in baby steps. (I don't know if you have the same experience, but every time I hear that phrase, I picture Bill Murray in "What About Bob?")

Baby steppin'.

It's the concept of breaking something into pieces - into manageable goals - not being overcome by an overwhelming goal......"chunking" it up.

It's also connected to the concept of perseverance for me. I can just baby step. I can make progress, even it it's small progress, with baby steps.

I know that eventually I'll get there or get it or do it. It's ok if it's not tomorrow but I KNOW that it will BE if I keep baby stepping towards it.

Face life as you find it - defiant and unafraid.

Mother Nature clearly stands proud, defiant and unafraid.

Follow her lead. Hold your head high, unwilling to cower, strong, proud.

Life has many milestones, some good, some bad, all creating you. Face them as you find Mother Nature - defiant and unafraid - willing to throw down.

Life is never what you expect it to be. Embrace it for what it IS.

I believe.......

Stumbled across this - I found the bolded statement posted in the copy room 5 years ago :

I believe our background & circumstances have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
Only through knowingness can you become who you want to be.

I believe my friends & I can do anything or nothing & have the best time.
If you tune into the moment, you can find beauty and appreciation everywhere.

I believe we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
Most of the time, you can choose how how you feel and how you show up.

I believe that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
Everyone is on a journey. Reach out your hand today because you might need one tomorrow.

I believe that you can keep going, long after you can’t.
You can even if you don't know it.
