I’ve been riding a high for the past day. The feeling I get from watching the video is like none other. I just smile every single time I watch it. It makes me incredibly happy. I want to talk about something today though that is incredibly important. Avoiding the flats.

I am so close I can almost taste it. January 10th, the launch date of a work that I have put my heart and soul into, will be coming out for the world to see.  But that is what this is all about. There is the last part of the hill to climb. I have never been here before. Not at this level. There is the last part of the dream. You can’t stop now because you are so close. The countdown begins. Ticking. Ticking. Ticking. Set your mark.

Focus.

Passion.

Determination.

Love.

Never Quit.

Integrity.

Will.

Heart.

Faith.

Vision.

Everything you have ever wished for is right around the corner. You have put in the work. Years and years. Now it is time to finish it off. To sit there on that day with a smile on your face because it is complete. This is the big show. Your baseball dream…this is that dream manufactured into a different vision. It has the same weight. You remember taking those deep breaths during the last batters of the game?

Breathe deep. Feel the crunch of the dirt underneath your feet. Feel the cleats gripping into the rubber.  Feel the grip of the seams in your hands.  Breathe. Stare into the catchers mitt. ‘Fastball…outside corner…knee height.’ Breathe. Breathe. ‘Lets go.’

    What a great video! I have loved following your journey and today opening up your post to read, the picture you have “Be a hill seeker” really resonated with me. In July this year I successfully summited Kilimanjaro, a long time dream of mine. Just last night I posted Part 2 of my summit night experience on my blog and in Part 1 I had spoken of how the ascent to the summit was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. After summiting you have to go back down again and we literally skied down the scree back to Base Camp. It’s so true, if you don’t attempt that ascent, you won’t get to know the joy of swooshing back down! So awesome!! 🙂

    yes – there is that point of arrival. absolutely right. the artist as he nears the end of a project on which he has labored for weeks, or months, or years, has this sense of jubilation. well written. thank you.

    Love that quote!! Just remember that valleys exist between mountains. Sometimes when something great happens and you’re on the top of the world, it may seem like, “What now?” But remember there will be other mountains to climb. So swoosh down into the valley, be strengthened and refreshed by the sparkling brooks, take time to enjoy the scenery, but don’t get discouraged by a temporary lull and prematurely seek after the next high. Keep doing what you’ve been doing this past year; encourage others to climb and perhaps even pay it forward and help someone else reach the top. Congrats!!
