As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said: “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

What are you waiting for? Stepping out to do anything new or different can seem daunting. It’s easier to stay where you are – on familiar ground – even if you’re not happy. However, life is not meant to be lived in one place. It is a journey of discovery. So, take the first step. When you make a decision and then take action, you are declaring a moratorium on fear and opening the door to Divine Providence. Have faith. The path will unfold in front of you. Even if you trip along the way, at least you’ll be moving forward. Perhaps you will even spiral up to new levels of awakening and fulfillment.

Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,


Contributed by Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy, Ph.D., MBA.
