Strength Comes From An Indomitable Will

Edmund Hillary once said, “It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” Every year somewhere around 150 people actually reach the summit of Mount Everest. Every year about 5 die trying. Climbing Everest doesn’t happen in a day and not everyone can even make it past base camp. It takes sacrifice, time, money, strength, and endurance. I have never attempted nor have I had a desire to do so, but I can only imagine the feeling of completing such a task. I have however had situations arise in my life that were my own personal “Everest”. When I conquered these things, I learned that it was not about reaching the goal but what happened to me and how I changed along the way that mattered. ~Marsha
