A journey of a thousand miles
begins with one step.
Some journeys are harder than others. Putting off the inevitable only extends the amount of time that it will take in order for you to get where you need to be. It doesn’t matter how hard nor how long the journey is that you have to make; it starts with the first step. Don’t delay your journey because of fear or dread. If it is a journey that you have to make, just get started and take it one step at a time.
Your decisions always bring with them consequences of one kind or another. This is just the way it is. Sometimes unwise, thoughtless decisions can have far-reaching consequences which we wish we didn’t have to deal with, but deal with them we must. The consequences of our actions don’t just disappear because we long for them to go away. You must take responsibility for your actions and deal with those consequences. The warrior has to take responsibility for all of his actions and the consequences which accompany those actions.
Sometimes the journey that our actions have set in motion can be a long, hard journey, but it still has to be traveled. Have the courage to face up to the road that you choose and walk it with honor. It doesn’t matter if the road is long and hard, or if the road is short and easy, your journey still begins with one step. And, no matter how many bad, ill-thought out decisions you have made, you can still change your life. All it takes is making a firm decision to live life as it should be lived and it begins by taking that first step.
