Food for Thought...

"Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road."

Dag Hammarskjold
1905-1961, Statesman and Secretary-General of U.N.

Boy, that's a biggie. I constantly find myself testing the ground, pushing at it with my toe, checking to make sure it's solid and safe before I put my whole weight down.

I need (and want) to stop doing that!!!

Wishing you peace and love,

I'm like you, Alannah - always testing, unsure of when or how to take that next step and sometimes losing sight of that goal (horizon) when I look back up.

Thanks for the reminder to keep the goal forever in my sight!

Great reminder Alannah.

This reminds me of that scene in the Indiana Jones movie where he has to take a "leap of faith" by stepping into what looks like a deep gorge, only to discover there's a bridge.

Hey Liza and Lu - glad you found the reminder helpful.

It's been forever ago since I saw Indiana Jones but I think I remember the scene you're talking about. But it's so damned hard to take that leap. So. Damned. Hard!
