This picture caught my attention yesterday when I was looking for something else, and I was struck by the message I saw here. Life is full of small to large challenges, events, obligations and hopes that we take steps on every day. We may just be starting at the bottom of the stairs, or we may be in the middle wondering if we should continue….and sometimes we get to the top and can claim victory.
But this picture reminded me that, everything is a step by step process, and we always have to begin at the bottom and complete the steps, the process, to get to the top of those stairs where completion, success or victory await us.
So, if you are on a journey on the “staircase of life” and if you are challenged and wondering if you should continue, or discouraged because the end is not in sight for you…just remember that the next step on the staircase is so close…it is right there, waiting for you to “step up” to it and when you do…it elevates you and gives you courage when you find that you can really do it.
Reaching that next step is such an accomplishment, so acknowledge yourself for getting there and be proud of your progress. Then look up, and know the next step is there to receive and support you…and when you get to the top you can raise your arms and dance the happy dance that you believed in yourself and your “staircase of life” enough to keep going.
It may look like a trudge up those stairs, but with each step conquered you gather energy and confidence to keep going…and the top of the stairs is really there, waiting with success and victory. What an achievement! Well done!
