Love the step you’re in.

Love the step you’re in.

A new friend shared that one with me this week.

The step you’re in.  

To love it, you have to see it.  You have to be able to see the path, or the landscape, maybe it’s a neighborhood, stairs, or a doorway where your feet (and the rest of your body) are. 

Where your feet are is midstep.

Even if you’re not moving right this second. You’re alive. You only exist in motion. Bodies are like that.

You have to step away to see the step.

Because when you’re deep in it, you can’t tell. It’s like being in a plane, window shades down. You can’t feel speed or direction, and you could be anywhere. And maybe you’d like to be elsewhere, or to get more into where you are, or do it differently, or ask for help.

To love the step you’re in, you have to step away.

Among other things, today is an opportunity to take a look around, see the nearscape and the big picture. Check out the view from the inside out, too. And from the past and future yous. They also know things.

Where are you?

What matters here?

If I don’t give up anything that matters to me, how would it look to love the step I’m in?

How about you?

Anyway, remembering to love is always a good idea. I am grateful for the opportunity to do that this morning.

Love the step you’re in.
