A first blog post is like a first step in any new direction.The decision to take the step often feels like a much bigger deal than the actual step itself.
And yet, if we get caught up in making sure that very first step is absolutely perfect–obsessing about every little detail and nuance–we may find ourselves frozen and not moving forward at all. Stuck before we’ve even begun.
As I sat here wondering about how to begin this blog, I realized that the paralysis I was feeling is similar to what we may feel when we contemplate the idea of changing our relationship with food, with our bodies, with dieting and eating and weight.
If we let ourselves think too far ahead, the goal can quickly seem so big and overwhelming that we feel afraid–or don’t know where–to start. And yet, it’s in starting that change begins–just like it’s in writing that I begin to see this blog unfold.
Our steps don’t need to be perfect, they just need to be steps.
Steps are the most powerful actions we can take.
So away we go . . .
