It’s incredibly easy to become overwhelmed at the thought of climbing an entire mountain by yourself. All too often, we let the sheer size and length of the journey frighten us into never beginning. Without taking that first step though, we can never reach the top. Our journey must be broken down into smaller steps that can be accomplished by placing one foot in front of the other, over and over.
Many people fear what life will hold for them and live each day in terror of tomorrow. They go through the same routine day after day worried about ever straying from the norm, following their dreams, or fulfilling their purpose in life. This can lead to a life that feels unfulfilled if you end up spending your years staring up at the mountain in front of you without ever attempting to climb it.
“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.”
The truth is, every mountain top truly is within reach if only you can find the strength and perseverance not only to begin the journey but to keep climbing after it becomes tough. When the road seems long, when you’re weary, and when you think you cannot take another step – those are the moments where you must find that courage buried deep down inside of you to keep moving forwards. The path ahead of you will be difficult. It will be rocky and maybe even dangerous. The weather may get bad, your body may be exhausted, but you can do it. You have what it takes to reach your goals!
Do not wait another day to start the journey towards becoming who you are supposed to be! You were created in such an incredibly unique way with a specific purpose in mind. You are so loved and valuable! Never forget just how much you matter!
