It's amazing how sometimes, you take one, tiny step in the right direction, and the path just starts to open up, and open up.
Trust it. Breathe a tiny prayer of thanks, or yodel one like a lonely goatherd, and take another step.
You can make this journey. You can't make any other -- there is no step you can take that isn't on this path, except when you try to take a path that isn't yours.
Step. Step. Step.
Kind of like the motivational posters said it would be, only so much harder, and so much more beautiful.
