Blog post inspired by my son’s journey up the 201st hill in Langley on his Strider bike. He wanted to go to the park at our local school. The park is about 3 blocks from our house and all of that is straight uphill. He was constantly smiling the whole way. Fist bumps and Chicken wings were shared with each small milestone achieved. The picture is of him at the park on top of a much smaller hill immediately following.
1. The sense of purpose and passion we all had as a kid seeing that big hill in front of us and shouting to ourselves, “I can do it!”
2. The journey!
3. It pushes you past your comfort zone to an area others deemed impossible to achieve but you proved is possible. Daddy and Mommy were not so sure but 3 year-old Cole knew he could do it.
4. The celebration of the climb! High fives, fist bumps, chicken wings, slides, swings, pretend ice-creams, and climbing ladders were all part of Cole’s celebration.
5. The reflection gives you the desire and confidence in yourself that you can climb this mountain and bigger ones with the same joy next time! 😀
