‘Your Mountain’

Wild – we all have it, that underlying inspirational determination to do something bigger than ourselves which in the end allows us to be humbled and find ourselves all at once. The difficulty is that so often we allow ourselves to be put in our place by what what we feel are various barriers/pressures/constraints that are placed upon our beings while we feel we are doing our absolute best to make it.

But, what if, our absolute best are the boulders we tie upon our beings that allow us to not completely drown but not completely swim without being tethered? So often we become caught up in the options for tomorrow instead of the possibilities for today. We convince ourselves that we’ll always have time later on to take part in the experiences of the living that when their light creeps in our beings feel electrical surges. When we decline to build up the energy and release it to the universe it stays at bay and sits uncomfortably in the harbors of our souls. The longer it sits the more difficult it becomes to maintain the brightness that was once ignited.

The best thing though is that those little campfires of passion/inspiration/determination are still within you!!! It’s up to us to feed them with beautiful pieces of pine and cedar woods to illuminate our senses when someone/something creates a spark to keep the burn going. The fire never really dies, but it can become dangerously low and difficult to build up. Sometimes that building requires not only the love/patience/understanding of others, but you must also require that of yourself.

Then, one day, you find yourself climbing a mountain trail for the second time in one day and you realize that voices of ghost’s past had managed to find a small cavern within you and hide there quietly. When you emerge from the forest and into the clearing of a beautiful vista you find yourself letting them go. The campfire roars into a bonfire and instantaneously you are smiling and relishing in the moment of pure knowing that this needed to happen, and suddenly your being feels lighter. Your heart is pounding, and your mind feels a sense of clarity.

Relish in these moments. Grow with and from them, and share them the moment they happen with someone that you care about so the journey can continue with not only your beautiful soul, but with the power of two.

Love Big/Dream Big/Live Big. That doesn’t always mean becoming monetarily rich and buying expensive things. More often than not, it’s standing on a rock clearing over looking a beautiful vista and sharing your growing moment with someone who cares because each time one has growth the other does as well; simply by sharing it with you in the listening/supporting/love.
