Sometimes the rhythm just never kicks in and you have to continue up the mountain alone.
Sometimes your fellow climber decides the path is too difficult and just bails on you.
Sometimes your fellow climber decides he’d rather climb another, less tricky mountain.
Sometimes your fellow climber stumbles and you hold out your hand to catch them – whether they decide to grab back is their choice.
Sometimes you stumble and need a steadying hand – your fellow climber may or may not help.
The further up the mountain you travel the climb gets easier as you know how to work together to make the journey.
If you are very lucky, you will find a climber who will make it to the top of the mountain with you.
And when you get there, you can reflect on the journey taken and enjoy the view!
