journey | day twenty-two

they say

a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step

and i guess that’s true

but i think the second step is braver.

when the mad rush of courage

that walked you out that door

gives way to a flood of doubt

that takes up residence in your heart

when you realize what you’re walking away from

when the questions settle into your soul

all of a sudden

those thousand miles seem so much longer.

it takes all you’ve got to make that first step

that leap of faith

and it takes all you’ve got

and then some

to keep going when you’re unsure

so if you can take a single step, darling

good.

if you can take a second step

even better.
