Change can be difficult – and that is because - we want to leap forward to the place where we want to be – land do it quickly – so we can avoid the pain of change.

I am learning (and it is a difficult lesson) – cause those who know me know I AM NOT A PATIENT PERSON – but the Divine has a funny way of teaching you exactly what you need to know – so I am surrendering to that Love.

Surrendering is not giving up – it is actually the most courageous thing you can do – surrendering is trusting in your Divine - your God – the Universe – to bring you peace, love and light – and I am realizing my best days are the days – when I simply take it one day at a time – and surrender.

The first and only step to surrendering is to go 'One step at a time'.

"What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step." - Antoine De Saint-Exupery

I know that the prospect of changing and growing seem monumental – and at times you feel (like I did) – it can be too much to tackle – but when you focus on one single day – on one single step - and only that day and only that step – your challenges seem small – and manageable – but when you focus on the entire – race/journey – you become overwhelmed and unfocused – and become frustrated and lost.

Then consider this approach. Take a single step to affirm that you are open to the messages from the Divine – and affirm daily that where you are at this very moment is exactly - where you need to be – to be open to the new experiences are coming your way.

With every single step you are letting go of fear, anger, hatred and preconceived ideas of how you should be – what you must do – and you are embracing the neutrality of simply being and living in the trust/faith of following the Spirit.

And soon you begin to see that your situation is neither good or bad – but rather a necessary experience that is happening to you – to bring you to a higher connection to your Divine – this is when your journey will not seem so difficult.
A journey is made of many tiny small steps.

Don’t focus on a far-off destination when you are confused and don't even know how to get there – sometimes we want to go to New York – but we are so convinced that the right way is to use a map of Toronto – no matter how you convince your self that the Toronto map is the right way – it will never, ever get you to the Big Apple.

When we simply let go -and let God – amazing things will happen – answers will come – problems will disappear – peace will be felt – and joy will be achieved – and true freedom will be yours.
So create a path to new places by taking it one step at a time.

"You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
