Step By Step

Dear One, you have great vision

And great confidence in your ability

But do not despise a day of small beginnings.

Appreciate the ability

To crawl before you walk,

And to walk be for you run.

Go step by step

And not leap by jump, Dear One.

This race is your own.

You are not being chased.

Don’t become discouraged if you fall,

Don’t give up should you fail.

And don’t become vexed with the process.

Pause, review, evaluate.

Plan for success and the execute.

Learn the lesson.

Try again.

You will get there.

And when you do,

You’ll look back at that long and winding road

And say, “That wasn’t so bad after all.”
