Yes, that is Miley.

And no, I'm not really a fan. Just had to clarify that...I put some music on the blog for your motivational listening pleasure. It's way down at the bottom if you want to mute.

I created a new playlist last week for my half marathon training and it was so refreshing to have new music. I didn't realize how redundant my old play list had become. I highly recommend updating.

I chose to include the song The Climb because I need to be reminded (even if it's from Hannah Montana) that there is always going to be another mountain. No matter how far I get in life the mountains are just going to keep coming.

I think that is basically what I was writing last night, in a whiny, round-about kind of way. It never stops. But that is the essence of life. And to be aware of that, even painfully aware, means that I am truly living.

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"
Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb
The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!
Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb

Here's to the climb! We're doing it.

Have a great week...
