Alexander’s Struggles – Intimidated By The Overwhelming Mountain Ahead
Some days it feels as if everything that I am doing is not moving me forward fast enough. Sometimes, I even feel as if I am standing still. Then, I want to do nothing, and I got to admit that´s what I sometimes even do. I know, it´s contra-productive but I guess it´s sometimes human weakness. In those moments, I try to tell myself to just move forward. To do something useful and sometimes it works, sometimes not. Sometimes the mountain is so intimidating that I cannot convince myself to take the tiniest step forward.
There are only two things that seem to help me always to give myself the feeling back that I have power.
The first is, to do some sport. It just frees my mind, and I can see clearer again. Afterward, I don´t feel like a victim anymore and I can look at the next tiny step on my way up the mountain.
The second is, to go into nature. Even a small walk of some minutes can clear my thoughts and show me how beautiful our world is. Especially, going outside without my phone increases the effect.
And afterward, I do the tiniest task that will move me upwards that mountain, no matter how small! For:
“If you can’t fly then run if you can’t run then walk if you can’t walk then crawl but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”Martin Luther King Jr.
So, let´s continue crawling our way forward. If needed on our backs and backward.
All the best,
“How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?”Epictetus
