“One Step Forward” is a mission I declared for myself some time ago. The mission was to take one step forward every day of my life, because “as long as you take a conscious step forward, you are unstoppable” . As a general pessimist for a large portion of my life, the most important step I needed to take every day was to find one good thing in this world. Although most of the insights I have put together are fairly neutral, I work hard to focus on something that is generally good and to find the bright side of whatever topic has chosen me. I try hard to do this once a day and post it to Facebook every day that I can. Posting to facebook is not my primary concern, but it allows me to have footprints to look back on. Breadcrumbs to track back where I was at different points in time. And every now and then, when it becomes very hard to look forward to anything, I am able to look back on these phrases like the wake of a ship and know that I am moving forward. Posting to Facebook has also given me the immense pride of knowing that at least a few others have read my words and found at least some of them inspiring or insightful.
