Did I happen to mention that the first step is the hardest?
Well. I lied. Not exactly, but hard is relative.
If the first step was the hardest, the second step is hard too. So is the tenth and the hundredth and the one after 6 months. If it were easy, we (and thousands of others) would be doing it without questioning things.
Don’t give up.
Just one little step after the previous one.
Just one foot in front of another.
Just one day after another.
Just keep swimming.
Dory’s song has been my running mantra for a long time. A reminder for me in times when I am overwhelmed by the massive dream that I want to accomplish, where every step is just hard as the first step. I remind myself that I don’t need to go fast, I just need to go.
I just need to keep swimming.
What is your mantra/inspiration when things overwhelm you? How do you keep forging ahead?
