It's just another hill to climb and I can do that.
I've changed the pictures on my side bar for two reasons.
The first relates to the header, in that I was driving to Buxton the other day. It was a glorious sunny day with piercing blue skies, except the hills in the distance were covered in white cloud at the base whilst the tops peeped out through the mist. And I thought it was so beautiful I stopped to take pictures.
The second reason is cause it feels I've got hills to climb at the moment metaphorically. I'm at the bottom of a hill, I can't quite see the top as the path meanders around the hill before it gets to the summit. I must be careful I don't get lost in the wood for the trees!
I know it's only a hill though and not a mountain, and the path maybe steep in parts but I won't need any special equipment to go up the path other than my stout walking boots, my pole and warm clothes.
I have my rucksack with me, with a flask of coffee, my first aid kit, a pair of binoculars and a pile of tissues to help me on my way.
I know I can get to the top, it may take some time, but I've done it before. I've had similar hills to climb before. And this is only a short walk compared to some I've had in the last 24 years.
The weather is grey at the bottom of this hill right now, but who knows it maybe like my real journey the other day and get warm and sunny as I progress along the path.
And although you may not be right beside me right now, I know your rooting for me and cheering me along the path. And that will sustain me as I go.
