When you accomplish what feels impossible at first – a mountain you believed you couldn’t climb but did – it expands the sense of who you are.
You now know you can climb impossible mountains.
It becomes a part of how you show up.
Knowledge and knowing become subtly different, with lived experience outshining your belief in what’s impossible.
Yet you’re not meant to climb all mountains.
“These mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb.”–Najwa Zebian
Sometimes you fail, a worthy signal to redirect your efforts. Or you learn something and keep going. Or even push through.
Not being able to complete the climb also becomes a part of you, and now your belief in what’s impossible is the next mountain.
That was the case all along.
And you were always whole throughout.
But now you know who you are.
