The Power of Taking Small Steps – Farhana Dhalla


True-Time-QuoteHaving returned from a retreat in the glorious Rocky Mountains of Banff, I saw the highs as people discovered their true purpose and I am aware of the crash that sometimes follows deep internal work.

I remember the ‘crash’ well.

It seemed that every time I would participate fully in deep work, I was expanded to a new place. A new place with my vision and mission and, a new place inside me.

When I would return home after a retreat I would be at dismay that my ‘reality’ was not congruent with my dreams. The contraction into my ‘real life’ would feel unbearable after being in such expansion. I would feel the deep ache inside me for wanting to live the life that I knew my soul longed for.

But, when I returned home to my ‘dailyness’ I was in agony as I longed for the expression of the person the I had just met. Me.

I longed for my full expression.

About 3 years ago I went to a 5 day retreat with Neale Donald Walsch. I realized that as I was expanding, I was no longer in pain.

I began to trust that I can live into my expansion. I began to trust that my dreams were no longer elusive or hard to attain. I began to trust that my environment was not limiting to me reaching my goals. I began to trust that I can move in ‘true time' towards my vision.

Things did not have to change overnight. I was changed. And every movement I now made was as that new person and, that was enough.

The ache is necessary. It is a reminder. It is a pull. And, it does not have to be the way we live. Every day, one small step, one decision made, one communication had, one extra smile to oneself is all that is required to catapult us – yes, catapult us – towards the dreams that we have created in our hearts.

Be gentle with yourself. Small steps – done daily – is the game changer.
