Castle Stairs, Quitting Smoking, One Step At A Time

Blog Post created by Youngatheart.7.4.12 on Feb 5, 2017

Chateau de Chillon sits on an outcropping of rock on the banks of Lake Geneva , Switzerland.


Inside, you have the opportunity to climb 130 steps to the top of the keep with a breathtaking view of the Alps and the shores of the lake. I committed to make that climb, not at all sure that I was going to be able to make it, but sure that I was going to give it my best.


I climbed and went along its walkways and climbed some more, one step at a time.


When I arrived at the top, the sense of accomplishment was empowering, and the view was as magnificent as I had imagined.


Kinda; like the journey to quit smoking? One step at a time will get you there and the view IS magnificent, and worth all the effort it takes to get there.

If you are just starting out, keep going!  One step at a time is .how it's done - just like climbing castle stairs!
