#Blogtober2020 Day 29: Step By Step

My new mantra is practice makes progress. Not perfect or there won’t be anything left to strive for. This has been true this year with the Couch to 5k. When I started, the small steps to complete the run seemed insurmountable and the full 30 minute non stop run was out of my league.

Each journey starts with a single step. Now that I have completed the Couch to 5k, there are times when I don’t want to get out of bed to run. Or my legs ache and I just want to go home but I push myself for one more step, pushing myself to be better.
One of my favourite hyms has the line ‘One more step along the road I go… from the old I travel to the new’. I made this pic 3 years ago when Matthew finished infant school and Anya finished preschool. I loved the way they are walking ahead together, their future in front of them, big changes ahead
It is ok to take a step backwards but keep facing the right direction. Little things begin with a single step.
