Next Step

My next step is to be aware
Of missteps and wanderings
On circuitous routes

To stay put, buck up
Stop looking around
For places and people
That don’t exist now.

An admirable goal Judy. Good next step for all I think so this is quite universal.

It touches me - the need to "stop looking around for places and people who don't exist now. A wow and resonance there for me.

I hear you, Judy

I do think it is a good thing to keep in mind the people who are in one's life now rather than always checking out around the next corner to see who might be there.
