She gritted her teeth and began the climb.
Held her breath and took each step.
Slowly, steadily, she made her way.
Never looking down, she kept her eyes on the prize.
The top was within reach when she suddenly slip.
Her heart sank as she felt herself falling.
But she refused to give up.
She fought and clawed her way back up.
Finally, she reached the top.
She had done it.
Looking back down at the path she had taken, she was filled with pride.
She had overcome every obstacle.
This was just the beginning.
