“As long as you can take one more step, take it.”
These words have been ringing in my head since I read them on HONY (Humans of New York) a couple of weeks ago.
They helped me be brave in a situation where I thought I couldn’t be brave any more. Turns out, I could.
They helped me keep exercising even when I didn’t see any visible results. Turns out, even when we can’t see results, our body still says thank you.
They helped me try again in areas where I really wanted to give up. Turns out sometimes that “one more try” is just the one you need for something good to happen.
Today these words continue to spur me on to goodness. Helping me set aside distractions and tackle a huge assignment as I plug along in my business course. Reminding me to keep on eating and cooking healthy simply because it’s good for my well-being. Urging me to take the time to connect with people who inspire me to love, create, and live well.
I’m so thankful for the people who share their stories on HONY. They never fail to impact me deeply. If you haven’t done so recently, please click here and spend a few minutes reading those stories. You cannot help but emerge a better person, richer in compassion, understanding, and kindness. And if you ever feel alone, read some more. Before long you will see that you aren’t.
Have you read any words recently that were just what you needed? I’d love to hear about them. xo
