Baby Steps

Steve (not his real name) is someone from my church. I don’t know him well. We sit in the same section and exchange pleasantries. That’s it!

Out of the blue, he told me that he’s looking for a new car. It took him 3 years to  save 10 thousand dollars. I congratulated him for his efforts. He admitted a DUI (1990) and that he’s been clean for 28 years. Currently, he rides his bike. That is his mode of transportation. He rides within a 10 block radius of where he lives. In order to renew his license, he has to retake his drivers tests.

I was gob smacked with what he said. To admit his drinking history and recovery,  was a MAJOR DEAL. He’s taken steps to reclaim his life.

His story left me with a new found respect for him. I admire people who take steps to move forward. We ALL have the ability to take “baby steps.” It’s just that we need to do it slowly and consciously.

Questions for you: 1) What’s got you stuck? 2) What steps can you take to move forward?
