Our Path...

"If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path" — Joseph Campbell

In the midst of setting up my website, trying to figure out domain names, banners, Etsy, business license and zoning requirements...I have become overwhelmed. All this while taking care of Tara and showing our home for sale!! But I am realising that the key to me accomplishing all of this is to take one step at a time. There is no path laid out for me to follow-I am making my own path. This is, paradoxically, much easier and much more difficult than it seems!  Today I urge you to take a look inside your heart and then...listen to all the yearnings and hopes and longings that you have (whatever they may be) and then...take one small step toward it. It may be writing down some thoughts in a journal or...looking up info. on how to start a website...or making a To Do list ...however small the act is, it is a huge step on your individual path. A leap of faith...that leads to our path...

Soraya...this is lovely and just what i needed today. I am on a path...and somedays I make my path quite difficult. No one does it to me...I do it to myself.

Thanks for this lovely, heartfelt reminder.

Have a blessed day. And as soon as your shop is set up...I will be your first customer:)

Thanks for a wonderful post! I often find myself overwhelmed by the details of a dream,( there seems to be so many things to do!) and forgetting that all I need to do is one small thing at a time. That's why I put a reminder to myself in my blog banner, it's a quote torn from some magazine years ago that says "I am the sum of all my small steps."

so looking forward to your website & shop!!
