Life is funny isn't it?!? When you are at the top of the mountain, be careful a stiff wind can blow you off. Keep at it. Climb back up the mountain. You know the path already as you have done it once before. Although this time it may be the cold dark of night, you got this. Run up the path like dogs are chasing you. Be prepared to stumble and know all you need to do is get up and start running again, no matter how exhausted you feel...that mountain top is still there...you just have to find it in the dark.
