In my work as a psychotherapist, I encourage people to identify and take achievable steps, towards where they wish to be.
Last night, I noticed several steps (some more achievable than others).
These days, steps — if they’re going up — remain a challenge for my very unusual heart, despite surgical steps we took six months ago. I’m not sure what the next steps are for me and my doctors, but I’m sure we’ll all be stepping up to address those, during my four hours of cardiac appointments and tests this afternoon (which may include climbing hospital steps to see how my heart and implantable cardiac device step up to that challenge).
Before I step into any meetings with my very in-step medical team, I always take the step of writing down questions and concerns. I believe that kind of preparation helps people take next steps, wisely.
Step up — before I step out the door — to all the notes I’ve taken steps to write down, so far, to prepare for stepping into lots of appointments and tests today:
By the way, this is not one of the doors I’ll be stepping out of today:
“Step One” from Kinky Boots was what I was listening to last night, when I was taking steps to capture steps (and one door) for today’s blog.
I shall now take another achievable step, and include some steps from a performance of “Step One” on Broadway:
What steps might you choose, today?
I need to step up, now, and thank all those who helped me take the necessary steps to create today’s post and you — of course! — for stepping up to read it.
