When it Seems Impossible…… And Hurts so Bad…

Into_Thin_Air

It’s been a little while since I wrote anything. I think creativity is something that cannot be rushed.  I feel that it takes time to develop an idea to see it through to completion.  My goal is to have a blog that is different from others in content and in revelation.

As I write, a story comes to mind that we can all relate to. “Into Thin Air” written by Jon Krakauer.

You might say that this story is just about climbing Mt. Everest, but there is more, it’s a personal account of great turmoil, triumph and victory.  Sure these teams of Men and Women put themselves in harm’s way by climbing, but the goal of reaching the top was the focus.  Some even died while trying to reach their ultimate destination.  The drive and ambition is something that we all have and can relate to.  The passion can be in other areas of our life for us gamer’s, we love to game and for the reader and writers we love to produce and absorb.

Reaching the Everest summit at 29,028 feet is a task within itself. Surviving the various camps and violent weather was an even greater one.  This was a personal front row seat to the Mt. Everest Disaster. However, it is a good read because it is in this story that we can pull coping mechanisms and devices to help us survive and climb our own Mt. Everest. Despite the level of impossibility and pain we go through we can overcome.

Success, whatever that may be for you is just around the corner.  You might be stuck in the last chapter of your favorite game or you maybe cannot find the time to finish that last page in your book. You might even have a problem where you’re stuck in life and no matter how hard you try you cannot make progress.  This story will give you the passion and fight back to peruse whatever it is that you want.  You might even feel that you have disappeared literally into thin air, but while you’re there, slowly begin to climb your way out.  Read that book you’ve always wanted to; finish that video game that you were stuck on, start that business that is in your soul. Tell that girl how much she means to you; tell him how much he means to you. Begin to dig yourself out of the snow pit and climb your Everest.

Is there something in your life that you currently cannot master? Is your Mt. Everest getting the best of you? Care to share? Comment below.
