What is the most important step in a marathon? All of them! So too is the case in life, each event is important.
Sometimes there are things that have happened in our lives that we are not all that proud of, and we try to side step them, hide them, or pretend they did not happen. Well they did occur, and for a very good reason. The practice is to track down the why that lies underneath the ‘step’.
I know that I would not be who I am without ALL THE STEPS I have taken in my life; those I consider good, those I see as bad, along with those ugly ones. Each ‘step’ provided me with knowledge and understanding and enables me to have compassion for others.
Appreciate each step along your walk of life, it makes death much easier to live with.
