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 mental, emotional or physical difficulties, or what that bigger picture was. All I knew was that physically it was something I had that my siblings didn’t.
When anyone takes a first step, it’s an achievement. Progress happens, then we begin the little steps. But so many opportunities are missed because we don’t see, understand or read the signs. We should have motivation, commitment and focus, but we may also need to have persistence so that we don’t give up at the first hurdle.
Without persistence, even with life’s journey it is easy to give up. Whatever form our persistence takes, it is 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 may always be inevitable. The outcomes we expect to happen may not always happen the way we want.
We should be prepared for all eventualities and that is what life’s journey teaches us. We need to be prepared. Not everyone agrees or may respond to us in a way that we think they should. Understanding our journey teaches us a lot about ourselves.
This is where using intuition helps. Intuition allows us to identify our own mistakes so that we change the way we perceive and do things. Intuition help us on our life’s journey.
