Too many times in our focus on the distant horizon we forget to stop and celebrate the steps taken so far.

The journey is long, filled with challenges. It tugs us awake at night, tossing us from question to possibility. Our whole being might be inhabited by a new project, a business being birthed, an adventure being played out.

The path is never straight. It is fraught with dangers known and discovered en route. We have to learn to dance with change, create in a heartbeat and let go with grace.

Celebrate the steps taken. Celebrate that you have stayed true. Celebrate the failures as they teach you what to do more of, or less of.

Celebrate that you have chosen this path when so many others would not have dared or might have capitulated at the first sign of struggle.
