Despite it all I find myself at the bottom of the mountain still #FridayReflections
Here I am at the foot of the mountain and
see the top ahead of me ,
tall, reaching out to the sky.
The lofty goals I ‘d set myself .
Often I had imagined , how it would be out there –
My head above the clouds, nearer the stars, the sun, the moon.
Staring at the world below, Savouring the rarified air.
And basking in the glory on the pinnacle of whatever it was I wanted to be .
I’d like to think I tried my best to get on top of things, clambering up step by step, scratching my knees, changing my path, to make the journey up the hill.
Yet , Despite it all I find myself at the bottom of the mountain still.
Looking upwards as it looms ahead , still waiting for me
Till suddenly I realise with shock that all along, this was where I was meant to be.
Right at the bottom, always there , waiting to help others to get up there,
To help them climb successfully .
Are you like me, far away from meeting your goals and fulfilling your ambitions?
This often made frustrated and disappointed till I realised that I was in a place where I was needed and perhaps that was the journey meant for me !
