As I was scrolling through Instagram, I came across a video of a camel struggling to walk through sand. Before you question the validity of the video (especially since camels are natural creatures of the desert), hear me out. To set the scene, this camel appeared to be going through the aftermath of a sandstorm, because it was an excessive amount surrounding it. In fact, it was covered knee deep in sand and at one point appeared to be galloping like a horse as it fought to get its legs in front of itself, because the sand was weighing it down.
As it struggled to climb the hill, I thought to myself, “Why won’t someone help?” Especially the person up top recording. Then it dawned on me. There will be times in our lives where we all struggle to make it to the top. Although there will be people watching who are already where we aspire to be, they won’t do anything to help us. Instead, they’ll sit back and watch as we struggle to make the uphill climb, hoping and probably praying we never do. But here’s what I want you to do, continue to climb. I don’t care how long it takes you to reach your goal, keep humping (no pun intended) until you get there.
