6 thoughts on “An Edmund Hillary quote

  1. I feel like I have been fighting for most of my life and have lost most of the battles, but I still continue fighting, even though I’m not sure why.

    I realise that sounds morbid and pessimistic, but that’s the reality of my world, which I deal with on a daily basis. I sometimes struggle to understand the reason why I keep fighting.

    I’m not sure about what the future or what that may bring, but it would be great to know that I have made the world a better place for my daughter and others.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, you can only do what you can do. It’s not always easy to understand why we feel a certain way, or what our issues are.

      It’s back to basics on this one. The more we analyse and work through what might be bothering us, the easier things will be.

      We must look within, and conquer our fears and ourselves.

  2. We often find ourselves sitting on top of our mountains wearing extra layers of anxiety, because we don’t really know or love ourselves.

    But we strike a strong convincing pose, nevertheless.

    1. Thanks Tim. Yes, we convince ourselves, our issues aren’t about us, but about others. But what it really boils down to is that we’re all responsible for ourselves, no matter what our experiences are.

  3. We have an enormous ability to limit ourselves and sometimes the most important decision we take is finding the courage to ‘climb the mountain.’

    1. Thank you. Yes, ‘finding the courage to climb the mountain’ is something we all struggle with. It took me around 13 years to let go of the guilt I felt because I failed in school.

      It is important we learn to look at the bigger picture though. Not everything is about us, we’re not always responsible.

      It is important ‘we find the courage’ to look beyond our four walls at those really responsible for where we find ourselves.
