You CAN do it, take a breath…

When you are faced with a mountain ahead of you, don’t let your eyes (or your mind) fool you!  When we are faced with learning Life’s lessons,  or a new job or any new Goal- we tend to get impatient.  I WANT IT NOW.  Get me to the top of that mountain now!

Mt Hood, OR 5/30/16

Try not to let your Frustration weigh you down my friends.  Louise Hay reminds us that “Impatience is the resistance to learning. Those little steps, one by one, must be taken.”    That really made me pause for a minute and think –  Impatience is the resistance to learning–  pretty neat thought.

So- Its OK, take a breath. Pause.  Enjoy looking back to see the ground you’ve already covered. It’ll give you strength and remind you of how strong you really are! It’ll remind you of all the steps you’ve already taken.  Remember that at one time, each of THOSE hill tops was THE hurdle that WAS in front of you!   

You faced them as you face this one,  thinking the same fear- CAN I DO IT?    YOU CAN!   You already have, many times.

Turn around to enjoy where you’ve already been.


Take some time, your neck works and so does your memory.  Take pride in the fact that  YOU are an AMAZING collection of Universal Energies collected like no other!!

Feel the joy of what you have already Done, and Seen, and Felt, and Learned,  and Conquered. Of ALL the steps you’ve taken so far.

Life is the journey, enjoy the VIEW as you go.  All peaks shall pass.

    • glad to see it made it. curious though, it didn’t look like it was sent out, I saw it in NONE of my tags under Reader. Did something change in WordPress? —-HOW or WHERE did you see it? From where I sit, it doesn’t look like it went out, kind of weird scenario with the blog this am…. thanks for any answers or technical info you could pass on to me. appreciate your read and response!


  1. Beautiful pictures. And, I agree, sometimes it is good to take a look back and see how far you have come…giving you confidence and motivation to keep going.
