Scaling a Mountain

How you gaze at the summit!
So awestruck, it’s almost silly.
The path to the top will only grow longer if you belittle yourself.
A mountain peak does not exist to show how small you are,
It’s there to provide you with a goal.
If you have time to wander down a side path,
You should use it to climb up instead.
It won’t be an easy climb.
You may have to spend your entire lifetime.
Step by step, steady as a turtle…
It’s possible that you’ll never reach the top,
You may burn out halfway,
But one thing is certain:
You’ll have a better view.

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had
    a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin..

      I don’t start off very well myself; I keep at it till things start falling into place :)

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

      You won’t find WordPress lacking, but it’s not the easiest platform to master… I started out with Blogger, and tried out Tumblr before finally switching to WP.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
