There’s no way to reach the top of a mountain other than to climb it. There’s no way to build a pyramid other than to lay the foundation. There’s no way to glide across the sky other than to use your wings and fly up there. To gain altitude, we have to put in the work – to keep going despite the rocky terrain, the beating sun, or the harsh wind. It will be worth it. The view is worth persisting. The higher you get, the better the view.
If we look at the sun too long, we are blinded. In the same way, we can easily become too caught up in our life, thoughts and feelings. Sometimes we are lost in a lack of motivation, in jealousy, or in negativity. Sometimes we are trapped in arguments, in relationships, or in the monotony of daily life. We’re deafened by the noise to the point where we can’t hear clearly. Sometimes we need to pierce our own bubble to get some clarity. We need room to breathe, a change of pace and a little distance. It’s okay to let go to see what you really want to hold onto. And it’s okay to let go of what is actually holding you down.
