These can be tough days to get through. We have worries and troubles and more. Often our minds are tortured trying to imagine or predict a future. In those imaginings and predictions we can go to some every dark places. But the future is simply not within our grasp. It is as likely to be good as bad. Our job is not to live in the future, but to live today as best we can, taking one step at a time. This is a lesson I was reminded of as I watched my dog Charley run in a meadow yesterday, well away from anyone else so no social distancing regulations were broken. Enjoy!
Dog in a meadow, worries not nor falters.
Life is ahead.
He walks on.
He does not see the full journey.…
Cannot and needs not.
He sees just enough.
Enough of the path to take the right next step.
And he steps with confidence and expectation.
In step with the journey.
One step at a time.
