Mountain summits are milestones

Standing in the valley looking up at mountains they look both intimidating and sometimes downright scary. Hiking up to their summit seems impossible. The thought of standing on top of them exhilarating.

It’s true. Many of those summits can’t be hiked. You need to be a climber to reach those peaks.

There are, however, plenty of mountains that can be summitted by hikers. All you need is to be fit and have experience or a good guide. Even when, from the valley, those hikeable peaks still look really intimidating.

Standing on top of a mountain that seemed so unreachable is exhilarating!

Taking in the view of all those other mountains is awe-inspiring. While at the same time you experience a spark of curiosity. Wondering what it will be like to stand on top of that mountain in the distance, the seeds for your next hike are planted.

Mountain summits are like the milestones in your life.

The journey there seemingly impossible, yet exhilarating. Scary, but doable.

Teaching you how much (more) you’re capable of than you thought possible.

What are milestones on your journey through life, that seem both impossible and exhilarating; scary but doable?

As always …

Go dare greatly!
