Music Mantra Monday: Keep Moving Forward (Climb Every Mountain)



I hope everyone's day is off to a great start.

I know we haven't been as consistent as we usually are with our posts, but we've been having some bumps in the road we've been struggling to get over. Life happens. If it was meant to be easy, I think there'd be even more unhappiness in the world as people would never learn to appreciate all the good they have around them.

Everyone goes through tough times. Some only face an irritating road bump. Others face a life changing/life altering mountain. Either way, I believe that we're supposed to learn from all times, good, bad and ugly. And when you're knocked off the path you are on, how you view the situation, how you cope with it, who you turn to to get through it and what you learn from it all play factors in making it through.

Keeping on the cheesy train for today's post, after the past two weeks of utter chaos around here, I woke up early one morning, looked out the window while making some coffee and was greeted by my Blue Jay friend chatting away, eating seeds from the bird feeder hanging just outside the kitchen window. This song instantly popped into my head.

The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies of all time. The movie comes out every year around Easter time and I've see it so many times I can probably write the entire script out. This song, Climb Every Mountain, I've always found incredibly inspiring.

In this scene, Maria is struggling between her determination to give her life to God and becoming a nun, and her feelings for Captain Von Trapp. The Reverend Mother is telling Maria that she has to face her fears and life's problems, not run away from them. Which can be really hard to do if you are facing something huge.

Trust me I get that.

It's been a whole bunch of learning around here the last few months. And you know what? That's okay. As long as you always turn to that one source of inspiration, you'll have the strength, aspiration and courage to keep moving.

Just like in this song: "Climb every mountain...'til you find your dream."

Happy Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every byway,
Every path you know.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life,
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.
