  1. *grin* Yes, absolutely..but I do find that a huge leap is much mroe fun!
    Thank you for this reflection. Sometimes thinking ahead to ‘all’ of the steps that may be required is overwhelming as well as distracting. When I create, I prefer a small purposeful step, while tapping into flow and allowing for the element of magic…As far as physical steps, many comment that I walk slowly– and I suppose in comparison to most that I do– but each step is full of so much joy and delight that I think many are too rushed to experience fully.

    • Thank you, Joy. Walking slowly and taking purposeful steps, whether physically or metaphorically, ensures that we are aware of our surroundings and that each step is, as you put it, experienced fully.

      It also means that when we’re ready to sprint, we can do so with full energy and full awareness of our muscles and our limbs. 🙂
