The day is almost over. It is slowly turning into night. The evening sky is brightly colored with oranges and blues moving through the scattered clouds that we rarely see in this beautiful dry state of ours. The sunlight peaks through here and there to let us know that it’s not quite ready to let the darkness blanket the sky.
The beautiful majestic Superstitions stare at me as I drive home. The colors of the sky touch the tips of the mountain that I once climbed. As the sun sets, the purple hue begins to envelop the rocky mass that lies ahead of me. I look at it from afar, and marvel at myself for having climbed to the top of such a wondrous beast. And a beast it was. Just like my journey has been over the past few years.
As I began my climb both in life and on this mountain, I was looking at a straight up shot. I had to take it slow. I didn’t want to fall. There were parts when I sailed along, but then I stumbled. I had to stop and rest a few times. I had to ask myself, “can I do this?” I was determined and focused. Yes, I veered off the trail a bit, but I found my way again and in doing so, I learned a little more about me and where I had been. It didn’t seem as if I had traveled that far but when I looked back to see how far I had come, I was amazed at my journey and the rugged path that I had so boldly and with faith conquered. Today, I am sitting at the top of that mountain. I’m driving my new car facing life head on. I have come a long way in 2 years. I am proud of how much I have grown, of the many things I have accomplished, and wonderful friends and family that have added to my happiness!
So when you see that mountain in front of you, don’t walk away. Take it slow, take your time, and heal. And before you know it, you’ll be at the top. Stay focused, because only you can write the story of your life!
Where does your path lead?
I’ve come a long way baby!!! So can you:)
Keep Hiking to the Top,
