Some time ago, someone mentioned the "mountains" we have to climb as we recover. I wrote this then and feel like posting it now. We seem to be working our way up one right now. (Guidelines)

Someone mentioned the mountains ahead. Well, they're only mountains from a distance. When you get up close, it's just more ground to cover, only it slopes up for a while.

But don't stop, unless it's just for a rest. Don't turn back. Walk up those mountains in a zig-zag if you have to, rest when you must, pass the same spot over and over but keep on going.

The view is fantastic, even if all you see is another mountain.

If you understand everything, some things are just as they are. If you understand nothing, things are still just as they are.

Thank you Don, I'll get the walking boots out right away. ( or can I take my 4X4 ? )

And you're right, the view is fantastic - even if it is another mountain.
We've climbed the biggest mountain when we discovered we needed help, those that come after are just hills.

Donald thanks I appreciate that.

Sometimes my problem is that I look at the mountain & say "What an obstacle" instead of saying "What a challenge" and "what a view"!
