There are so many different and surprising views as you ascend and descend a mountain. So many things you can see – especially when you look for them. The journey can be the main attraction. By focusing on what is around you, whilst you climb, you will see so many delights. Little things become clearer. You may decide to have a break at a certain view…a view which has just crossed your path. Unplanned. Unexpected. Sometimes you may feel alone and other times surrounded by noise or people. Notice this moment…this moment filling your senses.
We all know the phrase “seeing is believing”, so how about we turn things around? How about “believing is seeing”? If you look for things you will notice them. When you look for positive moments you realise they are right here. When you look for what you have achieved, accomplished and reached, you realise there are plenty.
So the journey up and down a mountain, however far you reach, is like having MS. There are bumpy paths, grassy paths, well trodden paths and also there are paths there to be discovered – yet to be paths. At certain points there may be obstacles to negotiate around, ones which become challenges or that steer you in a different direction. Some views will seem familiar and some views repetitive. Whilst other views will seem so dynamic, amazing and enlightening…if you look for them. Add to the mix the elements of our weather, others around you, decisions at each option and how you wish to feel. If you look behind you or in front of you, you see where you are in relation to many things in your mind and many things in your vision – then you can move forwards. This is what helps us in our off-mountain life. The here and now up a mountain is the here and now in your every day lifestyle. Choosing what you see; what you wish to see and what you feel.
The mountain is calling…so come and join me. Let’s go check out the views.
