New Week Notions - Mountains
In every phase of parenting, relationships, jobs, and life, we face mountains. They are an inevitable part of our travel on our own personal roads. However, as moms and dads, the mountains seem to have such a huge significance - there is so much more at stake. Parenting challenges, household finances, job stability, are constant inclines that seem never ending. We are not just climbing the mountains to meet our own goals or to strengthen our own selves. The climb has a different consequence. It affects the outcome and path of our children's lives. Than responsibility often looks so huge that we can see nothing else. We feel as if we are climbing mount Everest.
Just for today, take a step back. Catch your breath. Survey the hill ahead. With a fresh view, you may see that what you thought was an insurmountable peak, is really just a foothill. You'll find the inspiration and the strength to put one foot in front of the other, until you've reached the peak.
