One Step Ahead

I have lived most of my life either one step behind or at best, just taking a step at the last minute. There was one area of my life that I was better at being one step ahead and that was when I had a lot of little children. I discovered quickly that each morning I had to start one step ahead of them by getting up early and even going to bed the night before a little more organized because life could unravel pretty quickly if I started the day one step behind.

With this blog I am discovering how good it feels to be one step ahead by having a selection of topics and pictures prepared in advance. Most of the time I wait until the last minute and then I can have a little more panic feeling that doesn't seem to be conducive to inspiration. When I am working ahead of myself, then the inspiration and ideas flow more abundantly. That is a good lesson for life. Be one step ahead rather than scrambling at the last minute.
