The Journey to the top

The journey to the top can encompass many things, it’s not just hiking within the wilderness and reaching the summit of a mountain, it is also about reaching the pinnacle of your career and working your way to the top within the company you work. Both can and will be a lot of work, one being the hike up a mountain will drain you both physically and mentally, while depending on where you work it can involve more mental than physical? No matter which journey you are on, it will bring you great rewards when you achieve all that you want to achieve, especially when you reach the summit and not only breathe in the fresh air, but totally take in all the true beauty all around you.

The journey through the wilderness on your way to the summit of the mountain will hold so much beauty around you, that it keeps all your senses in tune to everything like the birds singing from tree to tree, the branches whistling as they sway in the breeze from the air, your sense of smell coming alive as the fresh aroma of the fresh air the plants and the wildflowers make your nose tickle with envy, your ears seem to be more active and amplified as all the sounds within nature have them totally in tune with all that is around you and will have you hear even a twig snap from a good distance away, then as you look out at what you are seeing, your eyes then will have you more in focus with all that you may come across as you walk the journey to the summit of the mountain and as you reach the summit of the mountain, now you really see clearly for many miles all around you.

The journey within the path you take in your career choice is a whole lot different than the journey to the summit of the mountain, the drive you have within you so you can work to reach the pinnacle of your career is similar but different as you work hard in your career, you now lose out on the true beauty around you, as you focus solely on the job and reaching the summit within the company you work. Now we all can not reach the summit within our career choices, but we all can reach the summits of the mountains we chose to walk a path upon, within our careers and with all our hard work, now we become too tired to venture out within an adventure, we then stay within our inner circles without getting out within nature, seeing all the same things day after day, keeping the same routines from week to week, then not only taking everything for granted but totally forgetting that there is a whole lot more out there and a whole lot more beauty around us as well. True that we need the journey within our careers to make ends meet, but if we do not acknowledge all the other journeys also, now the path we walk through this journey of life, just may become boring and have us wandering, instead of actually walking with confidence, all the little journeys within this one big journey.

The journey to the top of anything can and will come with some work on our part, but that’s just it, we need to work in order to reap all the benefits no matter what the journey for which we walk. Nothing comes easy and nothing will come freely, which is why we work hard, so we then can reap all the benefits and see all the true beauty that is all around us, at every turn along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The journey to the top comes in many different ways and will always reward us in just as many ways as well”

 

” There is much beauty all around us with the key being we just need to focus and truly look deeply into what we see”

 

” When we are out of focus then no matter what we look at will never be clear for us to see”

” Climbing to the summit of the mountain may take time and work, but the reward at the summit makes all the work well worth the trip”

 

You know as we walk our paths through this journey of life, there is nothing that is handed to us, the path is not lined with rose petals or as smooth as silk, quite often the thorns from the Roses are what we have to navigate around, and those thorns will prick us to have us feel the pain with our blood leaking out within the paths that we walk. Just as the climb up the mountain takes work, so does the walk on our paths through this journey of life.

The walk up the mountain will come with some obstacles to overcome, with each step along the trail, there will be very different views and very different outlooks of those views, we may meet up with a wild animal that may force us to do things we normally would not, then there are the streams that need to be crossed hopefully without getting wet? Then there is the weather that can change in the blink of an eye, especially the higher you are on the mountain, There is so much to the hike up the mountain, but as we reach the summit with such amazing views, all is forgotten as we enjoy what we see at the top of the mountain.

The paths of this journey very much like the climb up the mountain will come with its obstacles and hurdles, yes we do have to navigate around them and they will also knock us down as well, but it is never about the way we fall, as it is totally about the way we pick ourselves up from the fall. We all will have our own outlook and view things differently from one another, but this should never deter us from walking this journey correctly, there may be many paths and roads that we may cross and as we cross these roads, there will be others that may try to get in our way, but staying true to who we are will help us stay strong, as we move forward across the paths and the cross-roads, without going backward with much pain and hurt. There will be so many unknowns along this journey,  they can throw us many curveballs, which makes for a bumpy journey if we do not fix what we need to fix and keep moving forward toward the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us when he came and walked his journey here with us.

Every path may not be the same, but the journey for each of us has the same beginning as well as an ending, it is what’s in between the beginning and the ending that can and will either give us spectacular views, or have us see nothing through the clouds of our judgments.

 

” Climb the mountain to the summit they said, but they never said a thing of the view from the summit”

 

” The deeper you may look, the further you shall see”

 

” The hurdles may knock you down, but should never determine of how you pick yourself up from the fall”
