I like to have a plan.  Even if I don’t have it written down I like to have an idea about how I’m going to accomplish something.  Sometimes I hold back from making a decision because I don’t have a detailed plan.  

I’m not going to do that anymore.  

Don’t let the absence of a plan hinder you from making a decision.  Many times the decision will inspire the plan and prompt the next move.  Even if you don’t know how it will happen…..or completely believe that it will happen……if you can see a glimpse of the possibility……..DECIDE.  

Then take the next step, then the next.   

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”   Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Your post is so right on, I’ve noticed if I really want to do something even the small steps start to open up the road in front of me. Thanks for reminding me.

      You’re right. One step leads to the next then the next. Thanks for sharing.

    Marie your post resonates with my own thinking processes. Like you, on a daily basis I have my plans worked out in my head I am then held back to decide on what to do next because I am afraid that it may not work.Thank you for that quote from Martin Luther I will write it and stick it on my desk.

      Thank you, Mabel. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I also fear that things won’t work out, or that I will fail. That is why I hold back so many times. Instead I want to push through the fear and move forward.

    Amen! Love you Marie. I’m going to keep making my next step – whatever that is! lol

    I’m a planner too. So hard to take that risk, to just go with it and trust we will end up where we need to be.
