Sometimes you read the words of someone else and they are the light you were waiting for as you walked on your dimly lit path.
These words are that for me when I feel the overwhelm tap me on the shoulder.
One step at a time. One move. One breath.
And suddenly there is a lightness and a deep knowing that all that I need is right here inside me.
I hope you too remember this truth.
All you need for the next step is right there inside you.
(I really believe this.)
If you let yourself get quiet and listen, you will hear that deep knowing.
(Here's the full quote from Anne Lamott: "E.L. Doctorow once said that 'Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.' You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard.")
