Through The Moment

When the destination ahead is unclear…

When the path before us is uncertain…

When our burdens feel too cumbersome to bear…

When we feel too tired to go on… 

And rest is not an option… 

We should focus on our feet. 

Focus on the next step forward. 

Do the next right thing. 

Remain in the moment. 

Put on a smile and embrace the task at hand. 

And if we can do this from moment to moment to moment, we may discover that our destination reveals itself…

The path before us becomes clear…

Our burdens become lighter… 

Our exhaustion fades… 

And we are given the strength to carry on.

Because we need only take one more step.
