small steps

I want to be the one who is running,

the one who is swimming,

the one full of life,

I want to be the one smiling,

the one sharing good news,

the slim one,

the sunny one,

the productive one, sharing achievements,

encouraging others on….


the truth is today I feel flat,

just flat,

I could curl up,

close the curtains,,

wait for tomorrow,

then tomorrow,

then tomorrow,

but I have today…


I have today,

to get out of bed,

make the bed,

shower, breakfast, write, walk maybe….

I have today to eat well,

to grasp,

to live as fully as I can…


to live as fully as I can today

means taking small steps,

small brave steps,

to choose life,

breathe, breathe,



I will run, swim and smile again….


About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and a grandson). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
