This word fascinates me!

Definition                                                                                                               midnight moon

Noun  The highest point, peak; acme = the zenith of someone’s achievements


Height, summit, peak, top, climax, crest, high point, pinnacle, meridian, apex, high noon, apogee, acme, vertex.

The word Zenith reminds me of waves that slowly build up to their crest only to fall and rise again. That in turns reminds me of life. We all have peaks and valleys along the way. I have experienced tremendous heights and deep lows. My experiences have shaped me and make me who I am.

Sometimes I wonder if I would change things. Even with all the mistakes and detours and disasters and pain I don’t think I would trade it for anything else. I would be someone else if I did. I’ve learned to take the good with the bad, the happy with the sad and everything in between. Some of those experiences albeit horrible and traumatic are what has turned this lump of coal (me) into a diamond! In my eyes they (diamonds) share their sparkle and shine and brilliance with everyone around them, helping others shine

summit2Yes, I’ve reached my vertex in my career and have enjoyed many wonderful lessons along the way. It has been great to look back at all the achievements and see how I have survived them.

But it’s not over…..not by a long shot.

It’s time to climb another mountain! Are you with me?

What zeniths have you reached? Which ones are you still aiming for? Which are the ones you thought you’d never get to? Have you ever helped someone else reach theirs?
