The feeling of accomplishing a goal or overcoming a mountain feels really good. It is extremely satisfying but just for a mere moment! It was really never about the destination cause’ what’s victory or success without the process, hey?
As I climbed Preikestolen also known as the preacher’s pulpit or pulpit rock which towers 604 metres over the Lysefjorden, thoughts of giving up were real, so real. But it was the friends who decided to reach the top together (same vision) made the journey (process) enjoyable and most importantly, a heaps endurable because we were all focused which made the team strong! When one slowed down, the rest turned back, encouraged one another, waited then kept moving. I learned so much on our 4-hour hike (7.6km + 7.6km = 2hours up & 2hours down). What a blessing!
Managed to conquer acrophobia a tiny bit for the sake of the magnificent view! WORTH IT. And for all it’s worth, not just the beautiful pics, it was the journey up to the top and down from it. Had so much to reflect on!
Next mountain, probably Everest? 😂
“There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb”
