The Journey of a Thousand Miles

Three Vases of Flowers
Odilon Redon

Confucius said, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".  Often the journey takes courage, but it's usually that first single step that takes the most courage.  And then when we have taken enough steps, we get to the point of no return -- we can't turn back, we can only keep going forward, and that's when the journey becomes easier.

For anyone who is about to embark on such a journey, please know that there are many people who are cheering you on.  Whether you realize it or not, they'll be with you every step of the way.

It's often so hard to realize that we have the support we need, especially when we get caught up in our own problems. We all have our own journeys to make, some of them very difficult and painful, but the results of not making them would be even more so.

A beautiful picture, Jo. I hope whatever journey you may be getting ready to embark upon is a successful one. :-)

I hope you are right... because I have been on a Journey with a very bumpy road for almost all my life. And it feels as if there is no end & no one cheering for me.

And how about you you? Are you about to begin a (new) Journey, too!? :)

You're right. The First Step takes the most courage.

Hope you're having a great journey!
