From that which keeps us from reaching our goals
And stops us from climbing further.
These clambering voices that won’t hush;
Or those tormenting thoughts that feel endless.
Or that 1st step we’re just too timid to make.
The difficulty in accepting one’s state.
Having the strength the to seek help and support from others.
The fear of what others will think
Or what will happen if we don’t conquer
Reach and fulfill these goals.
The fear of needing to start over
And maybe over and over again
The frightful thought of being left alone-
Abandoned on the journey.
With no compass or tools to get you back on track
And keep you going.
The reality that true change requires time and patience
To withstand the challenges thrown at us,
And be free to reach our goals.
You’re not alone.
Take one step at a time.
Smile and keep going
Life is full of endless mountains.
Never stop climbing
Be grateful for all you’ve achieved until now;
Be excited about all the climbing you will continue to do
