(still learning life’s lessons)
i know what the uphill climb is like…simply putting one foot in front of the other, creeping one step closer to my goal…head down, staying as focused as i can; not wanting to get discouraged and see how much further i have to go. Not wanting to ask, ”Am I there yet?”
i’ve arrived at the top... the satisfaction; the exhausted mind and body. Time to catch my breath and say, ”I made it!” now what?
what goes up must come down… the force of mental gravity pulls me back down and while i descend i find myself already thinking about the next climb; what’s next? when will i do this again?
there’s something wrong here…
the art of running downhill… time to stop thinking about what’s next; instead i must run…RUN downhill as fast as i can with reckless abandon and stay in the moment. i tell myself to just enjoy the ride, because this is so much easier than going uphill.
i will never have this moment again…and the best part is, life doesn’t always have to be an uphill climb.
