The Steep Slopes of Life

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland (by Tobias Helfrich)

Life is no smoothly paved road on which you simply walk from point A to point B with no worries. It’s an adventure.

It’s a journey of surprises; some good and some bad. And along that journey there are potholes, cliffs, ravines, jungles, forests, and steep slopes.

Sometimes you fall into a deep pit that seems impossible to get out of. And sometimes a steep slope surprises you along the path you originally drew out for yourself.

That destination – your goal, dream, and hopes – is still there. You just haven’t made it there yet.

So when you are at the bottom of a pit, or find yourself falling down a steep slope, look in the direction of your destination and remember why you took off for that journey in the first place.

Then pick yourself back up and keep moving.
