We do not walk along the cliff’s edges to merely hear the ocean’s roar flutter through our nerves, making our blood rush a little faster, but to hear our own mortality roar in our chest and appreciate what we will see beyond the horizon.
Achieving your Goals✅
When I was out on my hike yesterday I realised how good an example it was of simply setting and achieving a goal
You decide which hill you are going to climb, you make a plan on how to climb it, you start from the bottom and make your way up through hard work and determination while crossing obstacles along the way, to finally gain the feeling of fulfilment when you reach the peak
This same method can be used to achieve ANY goal that you want to achieve, fitness or non-fitness related, no matter how big or small the goal is
Have a clear vision of what you want to achieve, make a plan on how to get there, get started on the plan and put in the graft, when you reach a barrier find a way to get through it, make an effort to enjoy the process and most importantly DON’T GIVE UP until you get it done👊
Jedburgh had been an important religious site for 300 years when the Augustinians arrived in 1138. David I wanted his new abbey to show his power and authority over the border region – a ‘debatable land’. The abbey still impresses today, almost 900 years later, despite war and weather. The cloister is mostly reduced to stone foundations, but the great abbey church of St Mary the Virgin stands almost complete.
It took more than 70 years to largely complete the building – during which time its status changed from priory to abbey. Architectural fashions changed too – from Romanesque to Gothic.
Set so close to the border, and with its royal castle and wealthy abbey, Jedburgh was a tempting target. It was frequently fought over during the Wars of Independence (1296–1356) and again in the 1400s and 1500s. The end of monastery life came with the Protestant Reformation in 1560.
It’s very hard to believe that my time here is ending. Why does it seem so impossible to feel at home somewhere until it’s time to go? Just as I’ve begun feeling confident walking everywhere without a map, I’m uprooting myself once more. Again I feel the pain of loving so many places in the world. I can’t be in all of them at once. And there’s so much space between them.
