Turn Back or Keep Going?
Today I took the vertical walk that was the backyard at this mountain mansion. I wanted to see the view from the top. I took it alone and as I began it didn't look that difficult, it's just a big hill right?😂
Because of the Rocky terrain I had to look down at each step and after awhile I looked up to see how far I had left and it looked like I had made no progress at all! I was already a little winded and tired and I had a choice to make. Turnback? Or keep going?
These are the questions that reoccur in my life. I start something. I struggle. I doubt. I turn back.
A few years ago I wanted to be a coach but I didn't want it to be something I gave up on. I didn't have faith or belief in myself. I had lost sight of my worth. The desire rolled around in my head and heart until one day I saw another coach on a free trip she had earned through her business. A business helping others! Right there in my kitchen, I decided. I'm going to be someone who does hard things. I'm going to be free. I'm going to stop turning back and keep going. I WILL be the person I want to be no matter what other people think. I WILL have a life if freedom and travel and adventure and I will build it serving others!
Friends, sometimes I feel like the mountain looms over me. I don't feel like I am enough. I start to doubt, but I've made a commitment to myself that it's not about what I am in this moment, it's about who I am becoming!
Today instead of looking up at the distance I had to go, I looked back where my attention should be , the step in front of me, and I took it.
Monday we start a new challenge group. We are working on doing hard things, facing fears, and learning what the next step is to the life we want. We work out, we learn to eat well but more importantly we dig deep and find out what's holding us back. We figure it out at our own pace, in our own time, but we aren't turning back.
My hand is reaching out for you but I will be here in a month and next year and 10 years from now because I am not turning back. The question is are you ready to leave the fear and doubt behind and create the life you want? From the moment you decide that, its not only possible, it's INEVITABLE!
I made it up here today, one step at a time, and the view was breathtaking! But the view inward was breathtaking too! I LOVE being a woman that lives well! I love being a woman that does what she sets out to do! Take the step, we start tomorrow!
