The Climb, Miley Cyrus
Okay, so, I’ve posted this song before here, but I was thinking more about it. You might be thinking I have lost my mind posting a song by a teen pop sensation when I’m a thirty-six year-old-woman.
Well, you can’t deny these lyrics and I had to share them. Because, as a writer, I’m on a “climb” right? To be published some day if it’s God’s will. But I’ve always held the stance that it’s more than just getting published. Much more.
Check these lyrics out (below the video)
This part of the song is really what got me…. :
There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waitin’ on the other side
It’s the climb

So, to me, my writing isn’t just about getting published. Sure, that’d be great, I won’t lie. But I’ve only been on this road for about 18 months, and since then, I have met some fantastic people, have learned tons (both about the craft AND myself), and have drawn closer to Christ.
That’s quite a climb in itself if you ask me.
