Sometimes taking that first step forward is the hardest thing to do. It’s like being a little kid all over again. You know you want to go up the stairs to your bedroom, your sanctuary, all on your own, but it takes forever to get up the will and desire to even try. You’re scared that one long move will find you tumbling backwards head over heels down the stairs. So instead of walking up the stairs trying to keep your balance, you go for the next best thing: you crawl.
I’m slowly crawling up the stairs to a world that awaits me. A world that I have dreamt about ever since I was very young. Sometimes, even when you crawl, you can find yourself falling backwards. That’s not going to happen.
