Very nice, Marty. After all, life is a journey, not a race to the finish line.
... and vice versa.
Nicely put, and so true!I am facing it at this very moment too..
True....the slopes and summit offer completely different wonders....since we spend the longest time on the slopes, we discover many treasures in it : )
Spot on about stories of success. When one is at the peak of his success, he will discover that there are loads of memories, challenges, struggles, failures, and rewards; that propelledhis achievements in life. and in all cases those past experiences make his life more worth living.
Very true. So many people think they will only be rewarded if they reach the top, but there are so many jewels to be garnered along the way.
Completely agree :)
Nice one NP, its true there is so much to see on the way up and down also.
I interpret this as a thoughtful reminder to enjoy every moment of the journey, and that's waht I do when I walk or hike. :)
That's just true. :)How are you? I missed you and your visits, while I was away! :)
Very, very, very true! :)
The slope is the struggle...the summit is the reward. But stop a little and enjoy the slope. Nice one.
Marty, I think people who spend obnoxious amounts of money to risk their lives climbing Mt. Everest are the most self-centered people on earth. Just think how those sums could help people in need! And once they've gotten to the summit, what's left? Oh, wait! Maybe they could carry down the bodies of the ones who died there. Nah! That's way too much trouble.
All the joys of life lie among slopes. The summit? We shall meet each other there in a 100 years' time... :):)
The slope suggests a gradual incline, which as a hiker is a piece of cake. The summit has a nice view but it's a long way back down ;-)
