Do you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? Do you seem to carry a load so heavy that your very soul feels exhausted from the strain of it? What if I told you that instead of constantly having to cart that mental and emotional weight around, you could simply set it down and move on? It’s the truth.
“These mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb.” – these tender, loving, powerfully truthful words by Najwa Zebian shed a light on an often overlooked reality. That reality is that so many of us, instead of overcoming our challenges or climbing our mountains, bring them in their entirety along with us. That is a huge weight and an incredibly unnecessary one.
We are to face the challenges that come our way and then move on, bringing with us only the lessons learned, the positive growth we achieved and nothing else. How incredible would you feel if you did just that?! How much lighter, how much more focused, energized, and free! Start now and set those mountains you’ve been carrying down. If you’ve climbed them then they are ready to be put behind you and are no longer a necessary presence.
Let go of the guilt, of the what ifs, of the if onlys, of the weight of the past. It’s over now, maybe not forgotten, but no longer the focus. Right here, right now is and it’ll be easier going if your burden is lighter. You are right here, not on the mountains of the past. And it’s okay – You Are Okay and on your way to even better!
