Descending Your Steep Slopes
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A young man took his children to a recreational park on a weekend for their time to relax,play and share that special bond between father and children. While at the park, daddy was inspired by his son's statement when he attempted coming down a short, steep slope at the park.

He said" It seems difficult to climb down that steep slope dad; but I can do it if i put my mind to it right?" his father smiled, turned to his son and said "right" and with that, he went up the slope, held his two wheeled scooter firmly by the steering, looked to his target destination and pushed himself down with support from his right leg and up to the other end. He said, yes! when he got to the other end.

Many of us look for assurances, some motivation and a certain conviction from people that we have a lot of believe in and although we are confident in our own abilities to achieve and make happen, sometimes we seek that confirmation from another to certify our ability to do.

The young son found a lot of inspiration and trust in his dads words and with this confidence and the approval, he only saw the possibilities and the big picture, i.e. getting on the other side of the slope.

Sometimes, the only conviction you need sits inside of you and it tells you to go ahead and make happen. It speaks very silently, but if you would be sensitive enough, the voice would be clearer and much audible giving you the energy to make happen.

I also reminisce on the very many times people have admired the precious stone called gold and wondered if people still would like it seeing it in its raw state. In its unpolished form, its not appealing to the eyes, but after rigorous refining, it comes out with its unique brightness, appealing to all that see it.

It is same my friends with this life we walk, we fall down, tumble over and want to give up, forgetting that the challenges of life, make us beautiful, more matured and fine beings if we would go through them knowing that at the end, we will be like gold in its fine state.

See your self on top of that cliff or slope with your roller skater, scooter or what ever equipment that would enable you come down from that height. See the possibilities in your descent, let all your frailties go, gather confidence knowing that the end would be beautiful, bury your fear but let it guide you and roll away.

You gain a lot of skill, learn how to maneuver your way down the slope,cliff or mountain and soon you would have been a master of the big mountain.

Smile when you go through your moments of challenges and remember that if you keep to your focus, you too will learn to dance through your slopes and achieve your bliss. Soon, you will be saying yes! like the little boy at the park.
