The Stepping Stones of Life

Stepping Stones“Sometimes shit is going to go wrong in your life. Sometimes, you’ll feel like everyone is stabbing in you in the back and you can’t catch a break. These are the moments to take a step back. Step back and ask yourself if you are trying to make something work that wasn’t meant to work for you… Sometimes things don’t work out because that path you’re on is just that: a path… that path is filled with ‘Stepping Stones.’ Some of those stepping stones are big, some small, some slippery, some beautiful, some painful.
Those stepping stones are part of your life journey… and when you navigate those big slippery stones that are painful… that’s the universe telling you that you’re growing and it’s time to take the next turn.”


  1. “One day at a time” (or one situation at a time) is how I navigate. Put my foot on a step and take the time to see how my footing is, whenever possible. That helps me figure out which way to go from there. I agree with the comment above re: determining the difference between being stubborn or determined.

    Nice post, Darlene!

  2. Hi! Glad to see you’re posting again. And I have to agree with you; sometimes making things work is determination, and sometimes it’s stubbornness. It’s hard to know the difference.

What's on your mind?
