“All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man has taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

…and for my husband, as he is known to NEVER pass up a good Star Wars reference:

“Luke Skywalker:  “I don’t believe it.”
Yoda:  “That is why you will fail.” ” – Star Wars

I have many irons in the fire right now, some for personal need and some for community need, but I choose to “DO”, as Yoda would say- I am sure my husband is grinning right now, upon reading that bit! – and not falter or fail.

May you all find that strength that sits within you to keep going forward toward your health, strong relationships, community, and last but not least, your dreams; for dreams are there for a reason. Just remember that and take the word “can’t” out of your vocabulary, when it comes to that first step or accepting the opportunity that the Universe is putting before you. Go ahead take the challenge, which is being given to teach you your own strength and fortitude. You might just surprise yourself! ♥

“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.” – Chinese Proverb
