Life is like a mountain, hard to climb, but once you get to the top the view is beautiful.
A mountain represents both a high point and a low point. Even when climbing a mountain, there will be spots where you are going up, and then need to change direction and go down in order to continue to the peak. Life Lesson: Life is like this. There will be ups and there will be downs. The important thing to remember is that through it all, we remember where we’re headed on our life journey. Have we thought about the peak we’re aiming for?
Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.

Depending on where you are there may or may not be a trail to follow. Along the easier parts of the mountain, those which are traveled regularly by many, trails are plentiful and in good condition. The closer you get to the peak, or the farther away you get from places that are most popular, the less likely you are to have an easy trail to follow. Obstacles are out there in our lives. And we’ll most certainly encounter them as we go through life. There will be times we stumble along the way in life.
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.
