Lessons in the Valley

Inspired this morning by a quote posted by a friend on Facebook.  “Mountains inspire leaders, but valleys mature them.”  J Philip Everson

Everyone wants to be on top of the mountain, but few want to actually put in the time and energy to climb it.  A lot of complaining, murmuring, and excuse making takes place in the valley, but there are necessary lessons in the valley.  So instead of defeating ourselves with negativity during our ‘valley time’, embrace and learn the lessons.  In doing so, we will be able to stand firmly, without falling, once we reach the mountaintop.
