One Step

Oh boy, it's been a very long time since I posted anything. So long, in fact, that I barely remember how to do it. I'm pretty sure I should have a header here, and I should have something at the bottom with my picture and bio... but the idea of finding those things totally overwhelms me.

In fact, that is my big problem: I'm overwhelmed. Due to a series of unfortunate events (some that were my fault and some that just happened) my life is a bit messy right now. Which is why I barely got this scheduled post up, and why it's pretty bare-boned. But I'm doing my best to muddle through.

Sometimes, that's really all we can do. When life is hard, and it feels like even the simplest things are insurmountable, sometimes all you can do is take a breath... take one step forward, no matter how halting or tentative. And eventually, the steps will be easier, they will come closer together, and that limping, jerking movement will become a confident, albeit slow, walk forward to something new and better.


  1. Hi Jen! Glad to see you in the "Posting Chair" (or whatever we call it). I can totally relate to your post--sometimes showing up and taking a wobbly step is all we can handle. But it's a start--in writing and in life.

    Sending hugs and a virtual red velvet cupcake.

  2. Jen! YAY!
    It's all about baby steps. And just when you think you're running full speed, something happens and you have to go back to baby steps. Maybe it helps keep us childlike... :) Glad you're back.

  3. Don't stress. We've all been there. :::hugs:::

  4. Hi Jen! I'm so glad to "see" you! Baby steps. I tell myself that frequently. And I totally agree, eventually they lead us forward.
