Wading In

Small Steps in to the Water

Kaizen: Small Steps, Continuous Improvement

I was asked today about taking baby steps, which caused me to think: Wade In – a phrase I had written in my own Reminder Journal ~ but needed the prompt from another to remember that it was even there.  (Thank you Nancy) I was on a coaching call, for myself, with another KMCC Coach & ranting about ‘wanting it all’ & ‘wanting it ALL NOW!’ Feeling very impatient, knowing I have many tasks still yet to accomplish, including plenty that I have been putting off & procrastinating about, but still, I wanted the final product, with out the process. I can say that with clarity now, but in the moment my urgency seemed validated. I was reassured, “That’s normal.” We finally decide what we want & then we want it immediately. I’m glad I received the message to take baby steps or to just Wade In: to enjoy the infancy stage of my endeavor & cherish it, as I know it won’t last. To take in my surroundings, honor the seasons, to go with the flow & follow the tide. In thinking about what it feels like to Wade In, I realized that if I was where I (thought I) wanted to be ~ I’d be in seriously deep waters, over my head, treading water, short of breath, probably having a panic attack and wishing I was back safely on the shore ~ really, not where I want to be. Turns out, I’m glad to Be Here. Now. The wading in feels fine. Safe. Comfortable, gentle & easy ~ it’s what I love about Kaizen. For as many times as I have jumped in with both feet or ran full steam ahead ~ today, I invite you, to just Wade In.
