The Climb-Today's Bonus Challenge

Monday, September 14, 2009

Today's bonus buddy challenge was to blog and reflect about a song we find motivating. For me, it's one i have mentioned before...it's one that i fell in love with from the moment i heard it. Took my kids to see the new Hannah Montana movie...i know...cheeze....lol.... but this song...wow...really...

To hear: www.youtube.com/watch?v=

and the lyrics:

The Climb lyrics
Songwriters: Alexander, J; Mabe, J;

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody's gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa

Kitty's back...lol...you know...life is a climb....our weight loss journey is a climb... getting out of debt or just paying the bills sometimes...yea, it's a climb....but though we need to pay bills, even save some money, lose weight and get healthy...all of it....we need to do it...but that is not what life is really about.... let's face it...life happens.... but if we take a look...look around...the climb...well...come look from the top of a building...or a hill... or even a mountain...now can you see.... see it all....was it worth the climb.... yea... it gets tough... but it can also be fun....

Let me tell you something that happened on family vacation....we went to Brandywine Falls....dd1 and i are deathly afraid of heights...she stayed back...i...went for it... this was on my top 10 things to do before i died and i wasn't missing it... we had to go down first to see the view looking up...which means...we had to climb back up...uh...yea... i'm in better shape than before...but not great... i'm still a very large woman here...lol... but to be honest...yea...it got rough...but...it was also spectacular.... the view...the sites... and oh...doing this with family...only means it was fun and funny to....lol....yea...the falls was great...but you know what...the climb was even better.

    Great song and great blog Kitty. I was thinking of blogging about my song before I read that that was the challenge. Do you have ESP or what?
