Climbing a mountain is never easy.

It requires courage,


determination —

pushing us beyond our limitations.


But this is precisely why it is exhilarating when we reach the top.

Fists pumped in the air,

proclaiming from the top of our lungs,

"I made it!"

Only to find ourselves descending quickly,

and onto our next adventure.


A little more stronger than before;

a little more wiser than before.
