Yesterday I climbed Toolbrunup Peak in the Stirling Ranges, located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. Not being much of an outdoorsy person, spending Saturday night camping at a basic (but beautiful) campsite in the mountains, followed by a half-day hike on a vertical slope, was not something I had been planning at all, but my husband had organised this surprise mini-break so I went along, with some trepidation.
Since yesterday I have learned that this climb is actually considered one of the toughest in the area. It was made up of slippery, moss-covered boulders that were wet from the mist, large expanses of loose rocks and muddy, narrow tracks lining a steep drop. But it was also impossibly beautiful, and the view from the top made it well worth the effort.
My mind keeps going back to that peak, and even now I’m shaking my head in disbelief that I actually made it up there. It’s a great reminder that we are capable of more than we imagine!
If you look back on your life I think there are many moments like this, when you can’t believe you actually achieved what you did. In our daily busyness it’s easy to forget these milestones and adventures, that really do serve who you are now. What’s more, they can serve the people you work with – your clients, customers or team.
