If you need a teacher, find a child to teach you the art of small steps. "Lord, I’m not praying for miracles and visions, I’m only asking for strength for my days. Teach me the art of small steps. (...) Save me from the naive belief that everything in life has to go smoothly. Give me the sober recognition that difficulties, failures, fiascos, and setbacks are given to us by life itself to make us grow and mature.Send me the right person at the right moment, who will have enough courage and love to utter the truth! I know that many problems solve themselves, so please teach me patience. You know how much we need friendship. Make me worthy of this nicest, hardest, riskiest and most fragile gift of life. Give me enough imagination to be able to share with someone a little bit of warmth, in the right place, at the right time, with words or with silence. Spare me the fear of missing out on life. Do not give me the things I desire, but the things I need.Teach me the art of small steps!" Look at his eyes, he is the master of small steps.
