Motivation is what allows us, when the heat is on, to take that next step. Seeing the big picture, leaning into results that are not immediately evident, can be the hot work of summer.
Wisdom Walking: Pilgrimage as a Way of Life, by Church Publishing author Gil Stafford, looks at the walking we do in our life, both literal and metaphorical:
“Everyone has taken a pilgrimage. Some pilgrimages are intentional: I walked across Ireland. Some are unintentional: I walked my mother through the final days of her life. Life is a pilgrimage. But, do we walk intentionally, embracing the transformational process?”
Where are you walking? Who are your companions? Are you slowing down to smell the roses? Are you taking that next step, even when it is not easy? Stafford’s book offers some companionship — and some motivation — for your own wisdom walking.
