In this picture, you’ll notice in the distant view the intense inclined mountain side behind me. It was so steep the constructors thought it was a must that a handrail accompany anyone attempting to climb it. I almost thought it would be better for me to throw deuces up in the air, turn around right there, and bare the shame within of giving up.
But thankfully I didn’t. I dug deep within and found the will to remember my goal before arriving at the park or even when I was at the very bottom of the mountain… I had come so far! I found my will to keep going, and eventually made it all the way to the top. I was so proud of myself and was able to click lots of selfies and do a dance of victory with others that had also made it there.
In retrospect, I realized that often times when things seem the hardest, we’re most likely right on the brink of a breakthrough to our personal mountain top. We must press forward through self defeating thoughts and feelings of doubt, procrastination, and pity and visual where we want to get to.
I was so glad I was able to see the beautiful view of the surrounding forest & city from the top. Because that’s where I truly realized that it was all worth it!
So hang in there. And even if you have to temporarily pause and rest on the way, keep climbing up. You’ll be so proud of yourself for not throwing in the towel and you will always remind yourself in the future that if you climbed one mountain, you can surely climb another. I’m cheering for you!
