A long way up, a hard climb. But when I get to the top, I look back down at all I became while climbing. At the top, I open the door and step through, close it behind me as I will not pass that way again. My journey down the other side of the mountain is easier, the terrain is soft and not as rocky. I reach the bottom....then if front of me, there is another mountain!

How high is the next mountain to climb? Does that matter? How many must we climb to be over the final one?

Doesn't it get easier each time,when you learn how, no matter it's heighth? A bigger mountain with rougher terrian just might take a bit longer, but it is possible, once you begin to learn the right tools to use! With each climb, we begin to challenge ourselves to do it better in the right fashion to get to the top and down again. And safety, of course is a factor, so we become aware of trials and tribulations that we come thru it without many bruises and other injuries.

With each climb our goal is to get to the top and down again. But actually, being at the top is blissful, as the view on high allows much to be seen. The climb down is quicker, earier.

Actually, my dream home is nestled mid high into a mountain, overlooking a stream of water, perhaps a river with tall pines, strong oaks and white birch to lace the view behind and around me.

With a wooden deck, with an iced homemade lemonade, a bit tart and just sweet enough with mint leaves picked mear the river bed.

If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

Wouldn't it make EVERY mountain climb a bit easier, just knowing that there will be another after it? Like, there's no sense in whining or making it something huge, it is just what it is and there will be more after that--like, no sense in giving the negatives of the climb to much power (sort of like going to work every day?)?

True, EF,

Looking at it that way helps to think we WILL get past it, during those times when it seems that we are stuck there forever. As the saying goes; "and this too, shall pass."

Thanks,

Sew

something simple as going to work each day - nothing simple about it!

Every single evening, I recommit to my recovery from depression, to finding new ways to cope with the difficulties I face. and every morning, I put this commitment into practice by rolling out of my bed and going to work. No more staying in bed until it's too late to go to work for me! I'm climbing a mountain!

Funny thing, though. My mountain only seems to have one side, going straight up - and no top in sight.

Well, not entirely true, JW...getting out of bed is the mountain, brushing your teeth and getting ready is the way down, then off to work for the new one! Another hour another mountain maybe?

Breaking my mountains up into several smaller mountains throughout the day, thus making them appear more manageable! Good thinking!

I tend to make mountains out of molehills. P'raps if I grew & grew & GREW ... I could see my unscaleable mountains as mere molehills from the viewpoint of my expanded, Higher Self.
