Climbing That Mountain

When I was processing a very challenging life changing event, I found my mountain..

When I needed to process my anger, pain and frustration, I put on my sneakers, headphones and headed out down a beautiful country road. At the base of the mountain, I took a deep breath and took one step and then the next.

It was a gradual climb and my heart rate increased with each step. My breathing was changing as this was a steep climb. My mind was processing the frustration and anger that was on a loop inside.

I put on empowering songs and I sang out loud forcefully to encourage this work that was going on in my mind and physically in my body.

My lungs began to burn as I reached the crest of this mountain.

There were angry dogs on the way and I cautiously kept walking by. It was as if they were sent to distract me further from my intentions.

As I reached the top, I had more pep in my step because the mountain guided me down this steep incline. A force was pushing me, encouraging me to keep going. My heart was leaping because I felt I had mastered the beast inside…

As I approached the bottom of this mountain…I steadied myself, turned around and began to climb it again as it was the only way to get back home!

What is your mountain?

Are you ready to face it?

Do you need support?

I am here for you…reach out!
