The wallpaper on my laptop depicts a tiny person scaling a cliff that looks like it would be up there in terms of a grade for difficulty. I don't know what a climber would call it. 'Bloody difficult' would be my own assessment.
So it serves as an illustration of my life. It has not been the easiest of courses. Two things have occurred to me. I choose the intensity of my challenge. It builds resilience and makes me stronger. And if you look carefully the climber isn't on their own. There's another person watching over them and holding the ropes. In real life and on a spiritual plain I'm reminded that I've got plenty of helpers too!
