Walking the Paths of our Life – Sara Jane

Walking, putting one foot in front of the other again and again and again.
When we are born, we can’t even sit up without help but slow we build up strength in our muscles and one day we do it without help.

When we are born, we can’t even sit up without help but slow we build up strength in our muscles and one day we do it without help.

The more we move around the more curious we get and then we learn to crawl. We feel nothing is going to stop us.

We watch everyone around us. Our parents are standing on their two long limbs, we want to do that. So we keep trying until one day we find we can do it too – we are walking, now nothing is going to stop us.




We discover we can walk and climb and skip and run and jump.  What freedom, we can explore.

When we learn something new we are full of enthusiasm. There is a wonder to life, a childlike pleasure in all that surrounds us.

That beautiful curious child is still within us all, it is still wanting to explore, to watch, to listen, to learn, to feel, to experience what life has to offer.





Too many of us have stopped walking, stopped putting one foot in front of the other. Too many stand still and have got so used to their surroundings that they don’t see it anymore.








It is time to re-kindle our childlike qualities of curiosity, to open our eyes and our ears, to take a step forward and another and re-explore our surroundings and visit pastures new.

Life is not about sitting still, it is about exploring the path you are on, taking detours, having fun, laughing, loving, crying, hoping, wishing; being.







I love being out in nature, walking and exploring, I have taken all these pictures, Dartmoor, Arne, Brownsea Island, Bournemouth Sea Front, Corfe Castle and the folks behind the tree are my Mum and Youngest Sister.







If life has become a little static, give yourself permission to take a step forward, step out of your comfort zone, feel the trepidation but also the exhilaration as you realise there is so much more to life than you have been experiencing.







Go for it, now is the time to walk in to your future.

    Fantastic Sara so so true. I love what you said about;
    ‘Sepping out of your comfort zone.’ That’s the biggest hurdle I feel people face.
    ‘Now is the time to walk into your future”
    That’s inspiring, thank you x
