I believe that any great journey starts with one small step. As a child, I wasn’t aware life was a journey at all. I never stopped to question my life, or why I had physical difficulties, or what that bigger picture was. All I knew was that it was something I had that my siblings didn’t.
When anyone takes a first step, it’s a big achievement. Progress happens, then we begin the little steps, but to do that we must be aware of things. So many opportunities are missed because we don’t see, understand or read the signs.
We need motivation, commitment and focus, all of which are completely invaluable; but we must also have persistence, so that we don’t give up at the first hurdle. Without persistence, life’s journey or not it’s easy to give up.
Whatever form our persistence takes, it’s not allowing ourselves not to be beaten, which leads to progress, both on a personal, emotional and spiritual level. Life isn’t one straight road, turns and dips in the road will always be inevitable. The outcomes we expect to happen don’t always happen the way we want.
We must be prepared for all eventualities and that’s what life’s journey teaches us. We must be prepared. Not everyone will agree or respond to us in a way that we think they should. Understanding our journey teaches us a lot about ourselves.
This is where using our intuition helps. Intuition allows us to identify our own mistakes so that we change the way we perceive and do things. This should help us on our life’s journey.
