Happily Climbing New Mountains

“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.” Andy Rooney


This yearmonthweek day is going to have its set of challenges.

If you're like me, much of the time I'm not very nice when a problem shows up; I treat her like an unwanted guest.

I avoid eye-contact.I hold my breath and hope she goes away. I walk away hoping to lose her.

My response is never a polite, "hello";  it's more akin to screaming, "WHO INVITED YOU??"

And yet, the challenges should never be a surprise.  They are entirely predictable and, as much as I hate to admit it, are exactly what I need for growth.

They are what you need too.

So rather than greeting today's obstacles with hostility, how about seeing them as a necessary part of the journey?  How about walking toward the base of the mountain and getting on with the hike?

That's my plan... hope to see you on the path!
