Today’s meditation from my daily meditation book:
One step at a time. That’s how you will get where you are going. You are being led, each step of the way.
Love it! For life, it is a good reminder for me to relax, have faith and remember that even though I have a vision of where I want to be, I’m not going to get there in one giant leap. I need to take baby steps and just trust that they will lead me to where I want to be.
I love it, even more, for running. I think we sabotage ourselves in races, particularly the marathon, when we look too far ahead to the finish line. If we start thinking, at mile one, “Uggg, I have TWENTY FIVE more miles to go”, we are doomed. Instead, I’ve found that the key to finishing a strong marathon is to focus on the present. One mile at a time. One step at a time.
So today, my focus will be on just dealing with things one step at a time. Starting with walking over to Caribou and getting myself a large latte and a blueberry muffin. 🙂
