Are you like me and think of the worst possible outcome and worry day and night wondering if that’s going to happen?

In my experience, the grandiose, big scary nightmare I craft up never actually ends up happening and I usually look back and wish I didn’t waste so much time worrying and instead, leaned into the opportunity to grow and enjoy the process.


I wonder why we expect the worst outcome and worry that the future may not be as bright as what people promise?

I wonder why we fear the mountain in the distance because we doubt our ability to climb it.


I think the answer lies in our perspective & what our eyes are focused on. When we focus on the mountains in the distance, of course we become discouraged because we are not there yet!

We can’t know our strength or power in the future because we only have today. And worrying about what might happen then takes away from what you have right now.


Focus on today and take it one step at a time. That’s all we’re called to do. As you put one foot in front of the other, you gain strength and learn all you need when you arrive at the mountain.


Who knows?! Your life may make an unexpected turn that takes you to a place where there’s a different way to scale it. Either way, I know and believe you will be fully equipped to handle your mountain or your future when you get there.

So focus on today. Be present today and enjoy it. Keep taking one step at a time. 

By my God I can leap over a wall -Psalm 18:29


Love always,
