On our way to Chhukung, the last village before we would arrive at basecamp for Island Peak. At this elevation there's not much vegetation except shrubs. You almost feel like you're in a desert but at 15000ft. You are at the top of the world but you're feet are still on the ground so you forget how high you really are. It's a very weird sense of reality!
The sun is intense but it's still very cold and the wind rips through you. I made the mistake of NOT covering my head, a mistake that would haunt me in a couple of days when I got sick. Man I received a lecture or two about not wearing a hat! lol. Wind and cold is harsh on the immune system, even when its sunny!! #Nepal#himalayas#islandpeak#lobucheeast#EBC#everest#mteverest#lhotse#adventure#mountaineering#mountains#travel#explore#climb#perserverance#trek#hike#yoga#fitness
You can't always see what's in front of you, but if you clear your mind, let go of the fog clouding your thoughts, adjust your position, you will be able to see a glimmer of what is ahead. #perserverance#clarity#hope
Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you avoid at all costs, and it is the risk of doing nothing. ~ Denis Waitley ~
Im constantly moving forward, something i have learned over the past few years despite many falls...just simply get up, learn from it, and move forward. #perserverance#pmgridchallenge
Never get tired, of picking yourself up over and over again. Never get tired of ‘failing’, and trying again. Never get tired of showing up for yourself, of summoning the strength to overcome the expectations you hold on for yourself. Never get tired of putting yourself first. •
Always remember that you can never experience all angles of other peoples lives. You can never see the good and the bad of all their lives. Their perceived success does not make you or your hard work less legitimate. •
Believe in yourself and your capabilities. You will get there!
Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.
SPONSOR ALERT!!! If you have been following our posts, or visited over the last weekend you may have noticed we rescued 4 teens from @mcspca the awesome foursome as they are now known by are still adjusting, but in less than a week we have already seen an incredible improvement. Last week, Maroon (pictured here) would hiss if you tried to give her some love, now she purrs instantly as soon as you go in for a pat 💗 Maroon is extra happy today because I just told her that @h0shijiro (who adopted mama yesterday) has generously sponsored her adoption too! Thank you Brick! The world needs more people like you, and we are so thankful for having you in ours.
Maroon is looking for a home with one of her friends as she hates to be alone. If you haven’t yet, come meet these sweet teens and help us love them! #adoptdontshop#rescue#adoptionsponsored#love#patience#perserverance#catcafe#catsburypark#asburypark#cats#kittens
There was a man whose biography reads in part something like this:
Failed in business - 1831
Defeated for the Legislature - 1832
Failed in business again - 1833
Elected to Legislature - 1834
Defeated for Elector - 1840
Defeated for Congress - 1843
Elected to Congress - 1846
Defeated for Congress - 1848
Defeated for Senate - 1855
Defeated for Vice President - 1856
Defeated for Senate - 1858
This was Abraham Lincoln's background when he won the presidential race in 1860.
He was much more familiar with failure than he was with victory.
Feelings of inadequacy, doubt, discouragement, and rejection must have constantly filled his mind, I'm sure. But somehow, he decided to listen more intently to his voice of courage, telling him to just try again one more time.
Great reminder for all of us.

Face conflict, resistance, depression, anxiety, obstacles of all types that hinder your progress and happiness head on. If they defeat you, accept the consequences of choosing to let them defeat you and deal with the pain and regret as a lesson and treat it as an opportunity to learn about yourself. What you are doing right, need to improve about yourself, what you need to discard from your life and where you want to be in life. If you learn nothing from it you are as good as dead. Nobody has time for your self doubt or excuses. Don't waste your time either. .
