One Step

A journey of one thousand miles is made up of many steps and one step can sometimes cover one thousand miles. To begin, we must take the first one. By doing so, we start at the end and end at the beginning. We keep moving, one foot in front of the other. When climbing a mountain, we do not focus on the peak. We focus on the next step, the next hold, the next place to put our pick. The big picture is made up millions of little pictures, a masterpiece of a thousand brushstrokes. It is a process, a marathon, not a sprint. It is not the flower waiting to be plucked, but the mountain to be climbed. Realize and overcome.
