Life's a Climb...

"Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory." 
Mahatma Gandhi

Just before I left FB, this was the last thing I had made and posted, and then just that quickly I decided to shut it all down.  But I wanted to share this.  I just recently started an exercise program to get me into better physical shape and to keep my spirits going.  My favorite thing to do is head to the Memorial Stadium on campus and do some laps and climb these stairs.  I took this picture to keep on my phone and to remind me, not to give up.  These lyrics performed by Miley Cyrus (yes I have a teenage daughter) keep popping in my head when I look at these stairs for fitness as well as other aspects of my life.

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying "You'll never reach it"
Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a 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

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going
And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

There's always gonna be another mountain....

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa
