The steps of life do not simply go up or down. They are designed to go around, to reach the breadth of all we are and can be.
We often travel up and down the same staircase. Sometimes we fall before we reach the top. Other times we find we’re afraid of heights. And there are times we take one step at a time, stopping to enjoy the view both up and down.
It is in this curve between the top and bottom where we live. This is where ordinary dwells. In the minute detail of the ordinary, extraordinary exists.
No matter upon which stair you currently stand, inhale deeply and allow the breath of life encircle you.
Be thankful for the highs, for it is where we feel the most joy.
Be thankful for the lows, for it is where we learn to climb.
Be thankful for the stretch, for this is where we connect.
Dare to take the next step…dare to bloom every step of the way.
