Every journey starts with a simple step

Every journey starts with a simple step.

And even if it feels as if you're going nowhere, like when your kids are fighting again about who didn't flush the toilet thís time, remember it's all part of your journey as a mom.

Or at least, that's what I tell myself.

And I actually believe it.

And when I start having doubts I lace up my shoes and go for a run. I start with a simple step out the door and I journey my way back to me.

Running helps me get ready again, for my journey as a mom.

It's all a matter of taking that first simple step.


  1. Amen. Some days it is this thought that gets me through.

  2. Somehow I've gone more than a week without a run (ug!) . . . until today! That FIRST step felt GREAT . . . as did all of the ones afterward. Today's run reminded me why I love to run and why it is so important for me to make it a regular part of my life. Hooray for that first step (and for your blog in English!)!
