Taking one step towards love (out of the shadows)

If you ever feel all bruised and beaten down by your self-limiting patterns. And the momentum of addiction has reached a fever pitch, and it feels like you are for sure going to wake up tomorrow in the same rut you are in today. And if you’ve had ENOUGH of rolling down a steep hill, getting cut up by the branches and rocks and other people’s discarded bones. And transcending this seems like an insurmountable task.

Start incredibly small. It is especially rare and seemingly by luck that a total and instant turnaround occurs, at least in my experience. When you want to walk 100 miles, you don’t get there in a single leap.  You get there by taking one step, followed by another, and another, until you’re 100 miles away from where you started.

So, start small. One step. Ask yourself, “How can I show myself love in this moment?” Listen for the answer.

I just asked myself. The answer was, “Take a hot bath in Epsom salts.”

Aye aye, Captain.

Just one step forward. Then in the next moment, “How can I show myself love in this moment?” Listen for the answer. Proceed, until the momentum of love has reached a fever pitch.
