Queen of Your Own Life

Dream | Claiming the Crown to Harvest Happiness

by Cindy Ratzlaff

I was in Yosemite Park yesterday and came upon one beautiful vista after the next.  As I paused to take this photo, I noticed a man next to me with a very large telescope pointed at the rock face.  I asked him if he was looking at interesting geological points on the rock and he said, “No, I’m looking at climbers.” I was flabbergasted. To the naked eye, it was just rock.  When I looked through his telescope, I could see a pair of climbers making their way up the face of this magical monster. Two tiny specks climbing toward the sky. Telescope man told me it takes 2-3 days to make the climb.

I couldn’t help but think “In this or any lifetime, this is something I would never do.”

For me, if there is a gigantic rock in your path, you turn left and find a new way to go. But for these people, a massive rock is an invitation to adventure.  I pondered that all day, yesterday, looking for the message.

Here’s what I woke up thinking today.  Awe. I am in awe of the natural beauty of this amazing place and I’m in awe of two tiny climbers who dared to follow their dreams and do what seems impossible to the average person.  We don’t have to climb a massive rock or perform dangerous stunts or invent something that changes the world to experience awe. All we have to do is look in the mirror and remember that inside of each and every one of us are dreams, every bit as powerful, that take as much daring from us as for those two climbers.

Dare. Repeat after us. “I will dare to look my at dreams straight on and know that I am strong enough to bring them to fruition. I’ve already done things that fill me with awe. I am more than capable of bringing this dream to life. So sayeth the Queen.”
