i still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. - John Burroughs (I'll add, and all the sleep I want to sleep :)
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step. What great words of wisdom! Taking that first step is always the hardest. Fear is a hindrance. Step past it.
