The ’17 Steps Behind Me

Its the end of another year, perhaps an era. With each year comes both the good and the bad. I’ve had a lot of both this year.

I’m not sure that every step I’ve taken has been “necessary” for the furtherment of my being –people tend to talk like without one step another wouldn’t have happened. I don’t believe that to be true. All the same, we take each of them. Today I’m going to reflect on 17 of the steps I’ve taken this year. Some steps were purposefully taken and carefully planned. Some steps were impulse leaps of faith. Some steps were taken because they were the only option at the time. One thing is true for all of them, though: I took them. They are a part of who I am now, and I cannot “undo” or “redo” any of them.
