Climb the clouds if I want to. Take a chance on myself in the world if I dare to be that bold. If my adventurous spirit is overwhelming to you cannot help that. You will have to decide for yourself if you can remain in the company of a “CLOUD CLIMBER”. For it is in the clouds I must climb. I have found a companion to assist in my ascent. He has been with me for many years through thick and thin. He is my Faith.
I have remained on the ground for far too long. There I was lost in the sea of other people who only clogged the way to my destiny. Then one day I looked up and realized that I needed to be where the path was less traveled. Up high in the Clouds. The last place anyone would look for someone who is afraid of heights. But that was just another part of my journey.
In order for me to begin ,my journey, I had to overcome my fear of heights. I had to come to terms with the fact that I COULD climb the clouds successfully. That at the height I wanted to reach I would be safe. At first this was not easy. It took a long time for me to fully accept that reaching the top of the cloud was possible.
That first step was very scary. I remember looking down and secretly hoping you would still be there for me as I began to climb. I had a lot of things with me at the beginning, that were holding back my progress. What I feared more than my success was the thought of losing you. But that thought had to go if I were to get to the top of the
Cloud. I had to rationalize things. Sort out my feelings. On the one hand I did not want to let you down. On the other hand I had a responsibility to myself and my passion. Without my feeling good about myself I would have nothing left to give to you.With this thought in mind I took my very first step.I kept looking down and that was delaying my journey. I had to stop worrying about where you were.
I keep climbing, each and every day. I no longer worry about your location as I can feel you right by my side. If you should ever decide that my voyage is to much for you I will understand. Not everyone will stay with me for the entire excursion I accept that. But I must CLIMB THE CLOUDS !
