A step in the right direction

Sometimes life can be intimidating. We can stand on the edge of opportunity and procrastinate about the possibilities knowing that one step forward could achieve every dream we ever desired, yet we also think of failure, and that is what holds us back. In times like this you must be brave, you must believe in yourself and you must never, never be afraid to fail. Because even if you fail you will learn something about yourself, you will learn something about your reactions in that situation and you will become a stronger person for the experience.

My father always told me as a young boy, no matter what decision you make, no matter what the outcome, it was the right decision for you at the moment in time. He also would say that from any situation you can see new opportunities and sometimes failure is the universe way of opening your eyes to the real opportunity that will make you happy. So, he would say, keep moving forward, there are no wrong steps in your path, just stepping stones to self discovery and success. So step forward today, start the momentum towards your destiny as it may be only a step away or it may be two or more, but either way, you are going in the right direction.

  1. Your father was a wise man…I can see here you received your wisdom. 🙂 Absolutely beautiful post and thought provoking. Have a great week, Alan. 🙂 My fav pix are: the whole first row; 1st and 2nd in the 5th row and the whole last row. 🙂


  2. OK…I guess I’m tired and can’t spell tonight…lol…that was supposed to read “your” wisdom. Excuse all the typos! 🙂 I’m getting off the computer now before I make anymore mistakes! 🙂


    1. I guess you need some sleep JMJ!

      The whole first row does have a wonderful dreamy feel to it!

      hope you are well?
      Take care Alan.

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ I have to agree, your Father offered you plenty of wise words. Perhaps he spoke from experience. Life is not meant to be wasted. Life is filled with opportunities and potential. That is one of the greatest things it offers to each and every one of us. Everything is ours for the taking. Butr, in order for us to really take advantage of all we are capable of and all that life has to offer, we have to take some chances. We have to take some risks.


    1. My father was always great with advice. Even the way he used to give it to me. Sometimes he would just stick a phrase or saying on my bedroom door or wall. I guess he understood that was the only way I would take it in as a kid 🙂

      Great to see you Seth, hope all is well with you and your family. Take care Alan.


  4. The 3rd pic on the 5th row and the 1st pic on the 6th row remind me of my pending project — and here you are talking about procrastination 🙂

    “Like father, like son” — it’s great to be compared when it’s all about being wise. But of course, you are a very special you! I really like you — a go getter! 🙂
