When You Take a Step

when you take a step

Each step leads to a new discovery in this evocative picture book about how mindfulness, peace, or change could be just around the corner.

To take a walk is to begin a journey. It can be an adventure or a chance to let your thoughts roam and be one with nature. It can be a time for daydreaming and pondering life’s many questions. It can be a time to reflect on the past or to stand up for a better future. So take a step and see where your journey will lead you!---from the publisher

No matter what kind of shoes you are wearing- party shoes, flip flops, boots or ballet shoes- or maybe no shoes at all- if you take one foot and move it forward, you have taken a step and that is how a journey starts.

Taking one step can take some courage but that one step can take you out into the world for moments of great adventure and moments of a quiet crunch. Just give it a try.

This quiet, empowering story of encouragement takes the things in life that look huge - maybe too huge- and turns them into one step and then another. As we say in my house, one step at a time.

You can do that. Can't you?
