So this week, I wasn’t planning on doing Frank of Dutch Goes the Photo’s challenge, weather. Now here I am up early in the morning – some small voice whispered inside to share.
Last week, I went to Zion National Park with my new partner. We were almost out of the park, and he wanted to check out an overlook.
I thought it was going to be a two-minute walk to the top of a gorgeous vista. Instead it was a significant hike up a mountain. And I’m scared of heights (until now!). At first, I just sat down at the first sign that I could possibly fall.
The thing is everyone – something got me up again. Each time I got scared, I dug deep inside of me and kept putting one foot in front of the other. Here are a few things that helped: (1) the first time I got scared, a hiker came and helped me through the hard part; (2) my partner kept telling me to breathe and hold my head up high; (3) I reassured the scared part inside of me; and (4) I asked Spirit for help.
AND I DID IT!!! What great keys for forgiving, for believing in myself. Time for a little more forgiveness: 🙂
I forgive myself for judging myself as unable to climb that mountain.
Wow. I’m aware of how in my life, that simple belief “I am unable to … ” has held me back. The truth is, I’m capable of a lot of things, and I am an amazing woman with a lot of talents and gifts.
What probably touched me the most as I climbed is this: I walked with myself each step of the way and gave myself love.
I just want to share with you that it really makes a difference in my experience. Something in my heart opened to love in an entirely new way. I was able to really support myself with a walk that terrified me in the past …. with a little help from my partner. 🙂
Frank, the weather was super fine at the top! So was my smile.
I love you all.
