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.
Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. Always take a moment to stop, breathe, and think to yourself "I can choose peace, rather than this." Always choose peace.
