“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – MLK
I think that quote can apply for many situations, especially when taking a leap of faith on choosing to follow a dream. I can’t imagine many people taking the first step to pursue their passion without having faith that the remaining steps will come after that initial one. And I’m positive few (if any) ever see the entire staircase. It’s impossible. There are too many moving parts…too many variables to know with assurance what the future will hold. We are blind to our destinies, and yet we are certain of its existence. Our purpose beats silently in our hearts. When we stray from that purpose, something feels off center inside the core of our being, reminding us to get back on track. To follow the dream.
And we should. Follow it. Trust it. Let it guide us on a glorious path of self-discovery and renewed hope.
