Stone By Stone, A Castle


Magnificent things take time. Your closest relationships, your children (or that puppy you thought you'd never train), your physical body, spiritual or emotional growth, career milestones, any goal you've ever reached. You probably didn't get there because of one single thing you did. You took a series of tiny action steps day by day, week by week, month by month... Stone by stone. And then one day, you looked up, and realized it had been done. A castle.

What stone, or maybe just a little pebble, can you place today to work towards reaching your wildest dreams? Perhaps a short workout, taking the time to prepare a nourishing lunch, a phone call, a love note, one minute of meditation, ten minutes of writing, signing up for that first yoga class. 

What stones are you already placing that you're not giving yourself enough credit for? Maybe you read to your little one at bedtime a couple times last week, you slept a full 8 hours last night, you told someone you love them, you picked up a piece of trash on the sidewalk, you made a first step to something big.... Remember, it doesn't take much and it doesn't have to be all at once.
