Five Minute Friday: Overcome

It’s Friday!

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the FMF community.

Today’s word is: overcome.


There’s nothing like the feeling of overcoming an obstacle.

Of summiting when you didn’t think you would reach the top.

There’s a lot of excitement at the beginning of something new, but the middle gets messy.

It gets discouraging.  There’s temptations to quit.  Momentum slows down.  It’s just hard to put one foot in front of the other.

But, when the end is in sight, when the summit is in view, that’s enough encouragement to keep going.

Then, you reach the top.

Oh, the relief.  Oh, the exhilaration.  Oh, the fading of memories of the messy middle.

The goal has been reached.  The prize is in hand.

    The first time I climbed a mountain I thought I was going to die 1/3 of the way up. But my family kept pushing me on and we made it to the top together. That was such an exhilarating moment…. truly a time when I felt I had overcome!

    Thanks for these encouraging words!
    Happy Friday, friend (Your neighbor at #FMF)
