The top of Porlock Hill, Exmoor, Somerset, in the South West of England, UK. This is looking towards Minehead. From this spot you can see for miles across the Moorlands of Exmoor and out towards the waters of the Bristol Channel. The scenery is stunning.

I grew up in this part of the world and absolutely love it

The difference is height from top to bottom is appropriately 1300 feet (or 400metres) over the space of about 2 miles. The gradient is as steep as 1 in 4 in places with hairpin bends. There have been a few burnt out brakes by the time vehicles get to the bottom and a few speeding vehicles has made use of the conveniently located emergency stopping places on the way down!

Yes, I have seen cyclists coming UP the hill and have had to admire their endurance and calf muscles!

One of the best parts of this hill has to be the ice-cream van conveniently located about half way up, that sells some of the most yummiest, locally made ice-cream known to womankind (and children).

 Inspiration Card Meaning

Decide where you want to go, make your plans, take control of the action steps that YOU need to take and set off in the direction of your dreams. Take one step at a time and the path will unfold for you. There is a lot of energy in moving forward.

As you set off on your journey, you are likely to encounter obstacles and challenges. Take them as they come. Take the time to think each one thorough as you encounter it and take appropriate action.

Most success comes from following the steps, to the sign posts (or even the white lines in the road), one step at a time.

There is a huge amount of energy and power in knowing where you want to go. Set your goal, your intention and your destination and start.

There are also endless ways you can get to the same goal. Pick one route, get started and if you need to make detours around obstacles, those other paths will open up to you.

As you find a direction of where you want, or need to go, remember to enjoy the journey and to appreciate the amazing experiences and people along the way. Go at a speed that is appropriate for you.

Trust in the process and don’t worry too much about what might be ahead.

Have a fabulous day.
