The Valley

Have you ever stood on a mountaintop and admired the beauty of the view.  You likely did not just land at the top of the mountain and may have gone through a valley to get there. 

The valley is a necessary part of the climb to the mountaintop.  You don’t have to stay in the valley but will very likely have to go through one.  In fact YOU WILL go through the valley. 

You may be going through a valley right now.
The valley isn’t fun but you can look back when you get to a mountaintop and know that the valley that you went through was necessary to get you to where you are now.

So much of your character that will sustain and guide you in your life is built in the valley.

You can’t get to the mountaintop unless you go through the valley so keep moving, your mountaintop is coming.

I’m cheering for you.
