On Top Of the World
Updated: Oct 8, 2018
Life offers countless challenges, struggles and tribulations. That's just a fact of life.
The great news is each of us has the ability to face them head on, to rise to the challenge, to over come our struggles and tribulations and to make it out of each stronger than we started.
Sometimes they are thrust upon us and sometimes they are accepted eagerly with an open heart.
No matter how they are presented to us they should be seen as an opportunity to overcome and grow.
Can you imagine what life would be like if there were no challenges, no struggles, nothing to push your limits or make you reach beyond what you think is capable?
It may sound perfect but in reality, boring doesn't even begin to cover it!
Without challenges we can't grow, we can't expand our knowledge or experience, we can't become better than we already are.
Where's the fun in that?
As an avid outdoorsman; I love taking on new challenges, pushing my limitations simply because I can and enjoying all the benefits of success. I marvel at the new and beautiful things I get to experience. I bask in the knowledge that I did something amazing and exciting even though I may have been afraid or exhausted or pushed beyond the limits of what I thought I could handle.
As a creative; challenge is part of my everyday journey. It pushes me to reach for something more, to expand my horizons and to think outside of my own limitations.
I wouldn't trade either for the world. They are huge parts of me, they make me who I am and they keep me evolving into the person I will one day be.
Life can't be easy, it can't be boring!
Otherwise what's the point.
I know struggles are hard. I know they can be painful, crippling and terrifying but I also know they can be glorious if you know how to look at them.
So embrace them; all of them!
Climb your mountain, chase your dreams, find yourself, create your masterpiece and NEVER stop growing.
You are stronger than you know and the world is waiting for you!
'til next time,
