Not sure where I have been seeing that this isn't a new song but it is very appropriate for my cycling class where I was introduced to it.

Listening to it in class, I almost lost it. Way too appropriate for my life and not just because I was climbing a hill at the moment.

Miley Cyrus, "The Climb"

I feel this way on so many levels. Training for the tri. Adoption. My businesses. Juggling so many things in 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

Sometimes I feel like I should just set one thing down and walk away.

And the part that I need to remember when I am feeling like I just can't keep going is that...

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 are so many times that I wonder if my life will ever be as I have envisioned it. Am I ever going to make it where I think I am headed? As hard as it is, I just need to remind myself that the journey can be as great as the destination.

And really does it matter how fast I get there as long as I am heading in the right direction?
