Hill or Mountain

Sometimes when I look at something that’s ahead of me, whether it’s a literal mountain hike or one of life’s other hurdles, it looks huge.  Gigantuan and overwhelming.  But if I can just start, just put one foot in front of the other and begin, little by little it usually gets done.  And then looking back later, I realize it really was more of a hill and I shouldn’t have had the big freak out.  🙂  Here are some of our favorite hills/mountains that we have tackled.  Step by step.  Blessings, Lisa

  1. You are so right! We all have a tendency to make ” mountains out of molehills,” as the expression goes! When will we learn to be like the little engine who believed in himself, and instead of freaking out, he said: “I think I can! I think I can!”

    • I need a “fast forward” button in my brain so I can see ahead, not freak out, and then go back and do it. But wait….that would be weird to see ahead. So forget that idea! 🙂 Rambling on a Tuesday afternoon…
