The first steps of the year is always an uphill climb, and sometimes it's okay to take a breath and rest. Wherever you are on the mountain, any step forwards or back can be a wonderful thing. My best memories of hiking or simply taking a passage, are always the ones when I stop and take in my surroundings.
Look at where you are-- you may see only rocks, you may be taking shelter under a tree. Or you may be higher up, where you can see the deep blue sea. Just remember the views may not be the best with your head in the clouds, and that you are meant to simply be, wherever you are.
