I believe that we must move. We must be involved and engaged in something. I’ve found that even if we are doing something small or simple, we can still draw value from that something; it will still enrich our life to whatever degree we let it. Life will always move forward, and unless we move with it, life will pass us by and all of the opportunities we could have taken may be lost. Start off small, do something that motivates or alleviates your being. Then move to other people. Do something that will affect them or make them think. Soon, you will have made a contribution not only to your own life, but to the lives of others.
Record the steps along the way. It doesn’t have to be a journal per-say, but make it something personal so that you will remember the things that are important to you as you go about your days and weeks.
