The Climb to the Top
I got up super early this morning and climbed Mount Ngungun. It’s beautiful up there. Might have to get up even earlier next time and appreciate the sunrise from the top.
Started up the mountain probably about 5.30am. Had to drive there first, so I got up way before that. A warm morning too. I looked at the car dash after the walk (it was about 7am) and it was already quite a warm 28°C.
I’m not embarrassed to say I stopped a couple of times on the way up. Like I literally sat down. And I was pondering on the phrase, “Slow and steady wins the race.”
Thing is, I’m not used to climbing mountains. My body most definitely reminded me of this on the way up.
But I made it to the very top. And it was most definitely worth it.
The view. And good company. There’s plenty who brave the mountain that time of morning; and they have beautiful energy… because they quite literally grounded themselves in nature on the way up.
Life can sometimes feel a little like we’re climbing a mountain.
It can sometimes seem like it’s taking forever to reach the top. And occasionally we might stop and freak out and not want to go any further. I’ve been there, trust me - multiple times.
But if we keep it pushing… if we keep climbing… then we begin to appreciate the beautiful view through a fresh lens.
Always remember to stop for a moment and truly appreciate how far you’ve come; and celebrate each time you reach new heights. This is how we stay in the present and truly appreciate the moment for what it is.
As we push beyond what we consider our limits, it’s kind of like we’re practising climbing to the top of that mountain. And as we continue to practise climbing, the pace starts to quicken.
The goal should be to become ‘Master’ of the climb.
As we shift into our flow state, sometimes we don’t even realise how fast we’re going or how far we’ve actually come, because quite honestly we’ve stopped paying all that much attention.
And then we look back (or down) and realise just how far we’ve actually climbed and we’re like, “Holy - what a climb. But wow, just wow!”
When I had almost reached the top, I asked a group of women who were on their way down again, “I’m almost there, right?” to which they said, “Yes, your almost there. You’re doing good. Keep going.”
We can support each other, by empowering each other along the way.
If you don’t hear empowerment around you, then please please work to create it within. Because you’ve got this, you really do.
Loves you! And I just want to say that I truly believe in you! We’ve all got that strength within us, if we search for it.
Perhaps today you might join me on my climb to the top? Perhaps you’re already right there with me? For if we climb together, it makes the journey so much more enjoyable.
Thank you for joining me on this climb to the top of the mountain.
