"a particular attitude towards or way of regarding something; a point of view"

My cycling holiday was a challenge, something I've wanted to do for a few years. 
Now I've done it.

Riding was interesting. I would see a mahoosive hill in the distance and think nooooooooo, I'm never going to get up that, no chance!! 

As I drew closer and started the ascent it just wasn't as hard,  as steep, as difficult as it had looked.
The perspective looked far harder further back.

The more hill's I did, the easier they became. Some of the hills I couldn't have tackled a few years ago, but I found the strength I needed to power on.

It got me thinking about life. That sometimes things look too difficult to even bother trying. 

But, we take a step, then another and something that felt too hard to achieve,  too difficult, just a pipe dream starts to become reality.

Those steep hills became humps in the road.

What would life be without those steep bits? They're there to make us stronger.

I've done something I thought I never would. Now I wonder..........
Could my pipe dreams become reality? Can what seems too steep become a hump?

Have you ever set yourself a challenge?
What did you do?


  1. I am in awe of your cycling challenge ……. I'd fail at the first hill !!!! I'm not really a ' setting myself challenges ' type of person ….. I just get on with things but that's just me !!
    Well done and here's to your next challenge and to your pipe dream. XXXX

    1. Hi Jackie! It's a gift to just get on with things - I have to think hard first!!
      Thanks so much for dropping by, XX
