Journey to the top.
5am, up, pack, go. It was a whim. A feeling. I walked to the foot of the mountain and stared up into the darkness. Took a deep breath, and took the first step.
One foot in front of the other I began the climb. As my journey upward become steep, and I could only see a few feet in front of me, my body, mind, and emotions were challenged. My heart rate and breath started to increase. My mind filled with all the TO DO’s, and I became aware of the emotions of being on this journey alone.
I stopped. Took a breath. Connected within, and took another step. I focused on the sound of my feet connecting with the Earth. Another breath. I told myself, “The reward is worth the journey.” Another breath, I looked up and thanked the moon for lighting each single step. With every new step I allowed gratitude to fill my being. I just... kept... going.
And then, there I was. At the top. With time to spare I set myself up for the perfect view. Sunrise did not disappoint. Her shine grew as she rose from the horizon. Her rays embracing the world with her warmth. The animals rejoiced and welcomed her. .
As I witnessed her gentle rise, I also noticed my body felt strong. My mind clear. My emotions at peace. I made it and had found that I wasn’t alone after all. There were others, like me, who challenged themselves and believed in the beauty that waited for them at the top.
Deep breath. Starting something new can challenge parts of your being you didn’t know were uncomfortable. But to align means to move through what’s uncomfortable so you can experience ease and flow.
