Ssowell Manifesto: Keep on Climbing
Builders of a better tomorrow.
Keep on climbing
Paint this canvas with something beautiful
with a vision as eternal and as endless as the sky
May we hunger for new horizons in search for better days
Let experience be your greatest teacher
Let is flow through your veins
And the greatest inspiration of all be…
Where the mountain meets the sea
And the sun glistens to eternity
Let the glory of the peak and humility of the earth bring you to your core and center
May heart and soul shattering moments ground you and grow you and renew you
be as resilient as the changing tides or seasons
like snowfall or rain – we are showered with blessings
and all we need to do is open our eyes to see the beauty that is all around us
like waves kissing the rocks eventually fades back to the ocean
like an opportunity, a break, or an encounter
it can be steady or it can surge
and then comes the comfort of clearing
and reflection that shines through, as so within as you
Touch, hear, feel the warmth of your body, the sound of your heartbeat,
and your soul rooting back to LIFE.
As aware as you are in that moment
a moment of which is all that you actually only have
And you realize that there is world much greater than what we can imagine
so vast and boundless
so abundant and grand
And that God is the ultimate designer,
and that there is a higher power, a higher being
By now you should be grateful for crossroads that you encounter,
as these are masked blessings for our growth.
When the trails become long and tough
be reminded that every option is an opening to a better direction
and every obstacle is a chance to get stronger, a chance to change
and every failure opens doors for a do-over
These choices we make define who we are today and who we embrace to become,
an improvement of a generation
builders of a better tomorrow
Every journey is as beautiful as the destination.
Keep on climbing.
Together let’s build a better tomorrow.
Keep on climbing
