“I walk slowly, but I never walk backwards.”
Wanted to dive deeper into the title of my blog, Walk into the Future. Last year I decided to change my mindset and physical space to embark on a journey. This journey was designed to allow me to experience a level of freedom that wasn’t present, but I knew existed—just had to open my eyes a bit and walk forward.
Merriam Webster defines future in multiple ways, “time regarded as still to come AND what is going to happen”. Both versions provide a flexible view and allows individuals to determine what the future means to them.
I selected Walk into the Future as my title to embrace the future and identify the courage to move forward. This forward approach covers personal and professional adventures as well as insight I want to share with readers. I created this project to share my ‘walk’ and provide insight into important concepts for me. There are days I sit down to write, and the words just come to me. There are other days where I will reach out to my tree branches to see what they want/need to read and then develop content around their inputs. I am keenly aware of my surroundings, so inspiration comes to me from multiple outlets, I just capture an idea and then work to develop into something readable.
My Walk into the Future (so far) has allowed me to:
- Post blog articles weekly
- Get back down to Jamaica
- Visit Paisley Park
- Improve my half-marathon time (3 times)
- Mentor others (in-person and virtual)
- Serve as a professional development vendor with the Seminole Tribe of Florida
- Gain followers for my blog
- Inspire people
- Live life
I could add more things here but believe you can see the positives I’ve experienced from posting blog articles on my current walk.
Walk into the Future has become a life style for me and I’m excited to see how it develops moving forward.
Remember, enjoy the process—walk, don’t run!
What does Walk into the Future mean to you? How can you leverage this concept in your daily walk? Interested to hear from you—thanks!
