Right now, the work’s piling on and feels way too overwhelming, like a giant mountain I somehow need to climb without all of the tools or the energy I need to do it. While those mountains intimidate me, they have me dreaming about the mountains in Boulder we got to see in June. Now those mountains? Those I could look at for hours, no need to attempt to climb them. Right now I’m dreaming of nature, peace, of a vacation. I wish I could run away from those mountains that lie in front of me to the mountains in Colorado where I can just rest, just be. Then I remember how much bigger God is than my problems and my stress, He’s got my back. There’s no need to runaway. This too shall pass and I’m going to get the work done. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s not supposed to be. All I know is I am more than capable to climb the mountains in front of me, no matter what my head tells me. My heart knows I can and that’s all that matters. So when I finish that climb? I’m going to be much stronger for the next set of mountains that I can’t yet see.

  • This is exactly what I needed to read today. Thanks :) We all don’t have to be alone nor are we alone when dealing with our personal mountains.

  • Aw, good! We’re definitely not alone and I’m learning not to be afraid to ask for help!

  • I get too overwhelmed to even ask for help.

  • Me too. I literally have to force myself to get in the mindset to ask. It’s really, really tough.
