“No-Fail” Friday: Step it up

Young Woman Traveler Journey Concept

Earlier this week, I told you a little story about me and a hill on a hot summer day. There was drama, there was intrigue…actually, maybe not much of either, but there was a point to it. Sometimes, the key to getting through a challenge is right under your feet.

Hesitation to branch out, try something new, or even believe that you can do something that only exists in your wildest dreams, for now. Maybe the courage you need to get there is just a few deep, intentional breaths away.
