The beginning: Navigating
The beginning of a journey may start with navigating a storm.
In the middle of a storm, it’s difficult to do much more than hold on and weather the storm.
It’s especially hard when you can’t see when or if the storm will ever end. But it always does.
The first steps:
1. Assess where you are. Begin to take the first steps to restore your hope and trust in yourself and the world.
What are the current/impeding crises/ What needs your attention? Plans? Tools? Skills? Sometimes it is obvious. Others, we move in a counterintuitive direction.
2. Determine *your* needs and choices, not necessarily what other people are bombarding you with.
Though identifying the size of the iceberg can be daunting, it gives you a much better shot at navigating toward your best destinations.
