The little engine that could

Oh my, how steep the hill, how rocky the road, how hard the climb and far away the top. Here we sit at the bottom staring fearfully at the looming mountain before us. The path to the top seems to stretch as far as we can see. We tend to waste too much time wondering how in the world we are going to make it, we are so tired already. The path laying in your wake is a partial oasis for the top is far and it can be hard but the more we climb the closer to the crest we will be. It is never as bad as it seems; the oasis makes it appear so. Look through a kaleidoscope and follow the many swirling colors, let them lead you. If you look through the faded lens then you will never see beyond the oasis and the top will always be covered in a patchy dense fog. Do not fear the journey, even from the bottom for once you work and the reach the crest the rest is all downhill. So, it is important to encourage yourself and climb that mountain so that you can look back and i say "I am the little engine that could"...And did.
