There will come a time in your life when you’ll find yourself at the base of a mountain, eager to get to the top of what stands before you, yet scared as hell – I mean, really scared as hell – to take that first step.
You’ll stay there, pacing back and forth, knowing that it’s only a matter of time before you finally GO.
You’ll stay there, and come damn near close to convincing yourself that maybe the path to the top of that mountain isn’t actually for you, that maybe you’re better off down there.
And you’ll stay there, as your entire being, soul, mind, heart, and gut slowly but surely begin to speak louder than voices you’ve been listening to in your head for far too long.
Suddenly, with the most and least preparation in the world you’ve ever had, you’ll stop looking around you, and you’ll find yourself moving forward. And as you do finally take that first step forward, you’ll know now that there is no looking back, that you are changed forever, embarking on this new journey that will make you who you are more than you’ve ever been in your life.
