Conquering Emotions one Playlist at a Time: The Climb

We learn strength through struggle, and success through failure. We can’t experience one without knowing the other. 

I used to always wonder if there would ever be a time when everything could just be easy, free of difficulties and struggles. I have come to learn that continuing to wait or expect a time like that to happen, will bring a never ending wait with unmet expectations. Life is full of challenges, but it is our perspective that will determine how we view it and how we handle it. There will be times that our journey will bring us to our desired destination, and there will also be times that it doesn’t. What would it look like if we stopped looking at those times only as failures, but also as times of new opportunities? 

This song reminds us that life is more about the journey rather than the destination. Let’s keep pushing through, growing stronger with each experience. And let’s make the best of our lives in the moments we have, rather than always waiting for the moments we desire.

Lyrics: 

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

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

'Cause 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 waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

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 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
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa
