how to move mountains
if things seem overwhelming
Recovering can seem tough.
Getting better can feel impossible, recovery impossible.
Success can appear as likely as clearing a beach of sand and being forced to move it one minute speck of dirt at a time whilst using chopsticks.
You might be setting yourself up for disappointment - especially if you imagine an immediate outcome.
But as a beach is a composed of a seemingly infinite number of individual pieces of sand, a mountain is merely a big pile of rocks.
So, to move a mountain of opportunity, depression, rage, anxiety, fear and pain you need to start.
Pick up one rock.
Pick up another rock.
And slowly, very slowly, you may not move a mountain, but over time, end up with your own wonderful rock pile.
Once satisfied with what you’ve done?
Climb it and shout with glee:
I’m the king of the castle! I’m the king of the castle!
Keep moving rocks.
It’s like the old saying goes:
When in Rome, roam if you want to, roam around the world for Rome wasn’t built by poppin’ zits on your arse.
