All Change

Sometimes the smallest step
in the right direction ends up being
the biggest step of your life.
Tip toe if you must,
But take the step.

Naeem Callaway

There are times when life throws so much at us that it is difficult to know which way to turn.  Whilst we may not always be happy with the direction we are taking, there is something reassuring about familiarity.

All of a sudden, we reach a crisis point and have to make some life-changing decisions.  I imagine that I am not alone in feeling daunted at the prospect and more than a little afraid.
I am trying to take these words to heart and believe that this change is for the best.  I may not be feeling very brave at the moment, but I must take this step, even if I have to go on tiptoe.


  1. BEAUTIFUL words of inspiration... and VERY well expressed in all, Marie. In a lot of ways I'm feeling in a similar place in my life at the moment--it feels like some big decisions need to be made. I feel one moment, brave, hopeful... and then the next scared... I'm also using Julian of Norwich's wonderful words: "all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well." :) VERY much I hope all shall be well for you, Marie. May all you are coping with now, be brought to a happier fruition, a new, brighter chapter of life, my friend!! ((HUGS))

  2. Thank you Tracy. I know that we share some of these big decisions at the moment. I appreciate your support and your friendship.

  3. I hope that those small tiptoe steps will take you in the direction of peace and happiness, Marie. Take care:)

  4. Thank you Rosie. The past few months have been extremely difficult and unsettling. Your words of encouragement are much appreciated.
