Learning to Climb- Step 1

Thinking about life as it's lived day by day and not about the entire journey is very difficult for me. I'm a planner, as much as I try to fight it, and I do some preparations for day to day. But I am generally a "big picture" kind of person, but I'm trying to focus on taking "One Step at a Time" (thank you, Jordin Sparks) and remember that's "It's all about the climb". (Ok, so even a 32 year old can find inspiration in the songs of Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus and Jordin Sparks).

I wrote this to help me remember to appreciate each step.

Looking up at the mountain before me
I take a deep breath, drawing my foot up.
Looking for a hold to grasp tightly,
My sole searches for a place to stand.
My soul searches for a place to rest.
Seeking desperately that next stronghold place
I find it and propel myself off, up to and grab.
While it seemed diliberate,
I felt the rush of a risk taken
And achievement earned.
With little to gain at one time,
And much to lose in an instant-
I search for my next burst.
When it comes-
I feel the rush of risk taken.
I am surprised to find I have survived again,
But wonder-
How can I stop now?
