"......concentrate on only the next step; and keep walking.
Think about what is working well
- not about your aches and pains.
Don't think about the total number of kilometres you are walking.
Only think about what you are walking today.
Step by step, hill by hill, rest stop by rest stop
- that's how you accomplish your goal."
Lynne, from Santiago Forum
I carried these words of Lynne's with me -and on some of the hard early days
when the rain was heavy and the tracks were like streams
and my feet were tender
I repeated these words to myself, and they got me through!
(until finally, thankfulness took hold...)
