The next step

I’m working on a longer story right now.  But these are words that have propelled me for weeks.

Beach road, right in front of me

There is no sure thing.  I can only ask this:
What are you ignoring?
What are you resisting?
What part of your life have you locked out and sealed shut?
And I’m not talking about something invisible and unspeakable.  Just take a look at what is right in front of you — the obvious and unavoidable — and step foot there.  All that is ever required of us is that we lift one foot and place it in front of the other.
