I Learned ...


16. I can climb a mountain if I want to.

I might not want to very often and it made my legs ache for days afterwards but I can climb a mountain. 

I climbed this amazing mountain in Wales last week. I didn't climb up the side in the photograph because I'm not sure I could have, I went round the side but it was still very steep. 

I didn't really believe that I could get to the top. I think I said, 'Sure, I'd quite like to see what it's like up there' without really thinking. We started walking and walking and it was steep and it got steeper. We walked until we got to the tip of the top, among the clouds. Now I know that I can climb a mountain if I want to. I never knew that before.

What have you learned about yourself recently?


  1. I learned that I can only control myself... *and that's ok* :)

  2. Ah, that's an important thing to learn. I forget that sometimes but it's so true.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. The Mama in me wants to tell you how silly it was! I am glad you had a good time xx

  4. Oh you. It wasn't as daunting as that picture looks. It was just a hill and bit more hill until it was a mountain.

  5. I learned at my success comes from striving towards my goals and not from achieving them.

    And your blog is wonderful.

  6. I think this is the coolest thing ever. You doing the giveaway for your e-course. Your blog is lovely!

  7. Tori - Yes, I agree. I need to remember that today as I wade through work. I have to remind myself to enjoy the process.

  8. Shelby-Lou - Glad you like the blog! Good luck with the giveaway. It would be great to have you on the course.

  9. Congrats! So lovely.

    I am learning the same thing and then forgetting, over and over.

    One step after the other is the only way to reach the top of the mountain.

    I just wish I'd stop forgetting when I'm halfway up.
