Have you ever watched a baby learning to walk? He starts off by scooting on the floor with his arms pulling him towards his goal. The next thing you know, he is on all fours rocking back and forth. Now that he is rocking and rolling, before your very eyes, he takes off crawling! The world is a different place for him as he is mobile. He can now start reaching his dreams on his own. Mommy and daddy don’t have to give him the toy anymore, he can go get it! It’s time for more adventures, and his next step is pulling himself up and standing as he holds on to furniture. He is wobbly and falls easily, but he is determined to see the world from a new vantage point. Finally, just out of his reach, he sees something so enticing that he must have it. It could be a toy, the family pet, or the outreached arms of mommy or daddy, but he must get there. The desire to reach that dream far outweighs the fear of falling. He lets go of the security of holding on and steps towards his dreams. He is walking! Sure there are some slips and falls along the way, but he is walking, and before you know it, he is running toward his dreams full of confidence and ready to grow and explore.
Just like a baby, you too can move towards your dreams with baby steps.

I’m not Your Stepping Stone
For the next week I invite you to move towards your dreams by:
Being at peace at where you are now, where you’ve been, and where you are going
Releasing any fear and doubt however it shows up – not being good enough, not having the right resources, or not knowing where and how to start.
Visualize your dreams by seeing them as a movie. Write your own script, become the star, and simply know that as your movie plays, you can always make edits and rewrite the ending to meet your new dreams and desires.
Be grateful for all the little dreams that are coming true in your life. Say thank you to the little miracles that show up as you are building your dream muscles each time you recognize your successes regardless of the size.
Mostly, whether you sit, crawl, walk, or run, I encourage you to keep moving towards your dreams. Live your highest life of peace, happiness, compassion, service, and love for yourself, for others, and for life.
Until next time, keep on keeping on.
