Mountain of experience

You stand today at the top of a mountain. It is the mountain of your own experience.

Through the years, you have forged ahead on its craggy pathways. Each day you’ve added valuable experience to your life and have climbed to an even higher perspective than the day before.

Along the way, you have found moments of peace and beauty in the green valleys and still forests. At other times, you have been challenged by the fierce storms and rocky ground as you made your way forward.

This is the moment that all the other moments have been leading up to. Now you stand at the summit on your mountain of experience, and the view is more expansive than it has ever been.

Never has your experience been as extensive or as valuable as it is right now. So what will you do with it all?

Now that you’ve climbed to the highest peak ever, choose to live a full and positive life, worthy of all you’ve already been through. Now that you’ve climbed so high, this is your moment to go even higher.
