"I don't climb mountains, I move them. I believe that we all have the power within us to do this."
However, at times I prefer the journey of the climb because honestly, the things I learn about myself along the way are amazing and awe inspiring. The journey reveal not only my strengths but my weaknesses, not only my light but my darkness. I see myself clearly and at times it hurts. I stumble, my feet bleed and the higher altitudes make it hard to breathe. Yet, I keep going, I try not to focus on the pain I am learning to keep my eyes on the goal while at the same time embracing the process and being ever grateful. Because if I do not give up, if I remain grateful, I will make it to the end of the journey, where I will reach the top, and experience the absolutely amazing view.
