Facing the Mountains

2011 was an eventful year for me. As I think back over it though with just quick thoughts the things that stand out are a couple of my mistakes and failures. Maybe it’s because I am still feeling the repercussions of my actions from a mistake I made which fills my heart with heavy regret.

Don’t get me wrong, I hate that when I think about this past year regret and failures come to mind. I think it proves I have a tendency to wallow in the downs and I don’t focus enough on the achievements of making it to the mountaintop before the fall. At some point I was up before I fell. Now I am still making my way back, treading further up this hill trying to keep my back to the past. What’s difficult is the tendency I have to look back, because when I look back the mountaintop seems so much further away again.

The important part to remember is that there are always gonna be mountains to climb… And there’s always gonna be times we reach a new low… But we must keep facing that mountain. The moment we turn away, we give up the fight.
