Today you keep a promise to yourself. Today take that first step towards something, anything. Do a few pushups, write one page of a novel, set up an art studio in a corner of your home. Eat a salad for lunch, whatever. Take one small step towards a goal TODAY. And when you go to bed tonight reflect on it, feel happy about it, maybe even make a plan for tomorrow. All goals are met one small step at a time. Today celebrate taking that first step. Hopefully the first step of many.
My son always wants to try and grow vegetables or fruits. I explain how hard it is here in the desert weather, in our small yard, blah blah blah. This year I let him pick out some seeds and we put them in a pot. Will they survive the heat to actually produce fruit? Maybe, maybe not. But we took the first step and my son is happy. And I am happy too. Who knows, maybe we will be eating cantaloupe in a few months!
