“When the sun comes up you’ll get your energy back” that’s what my dad said to me when we were deciding if we going to continue to the summit or turn back.. Yes, there was a discussion of not continuing to the summit and no it was not because of altitude sickness or difficulty breathing but simply exhaustion
And then the sun came up, and my dad’s words came alive. That sunrise and the energy it brought with it was one of the most power full things I had ever experienced. Because with the dawn comes light, and light brings hope and the ability to see how far you have actually climbed and how close you are to the top and that’s all you need. To be able to see your goal within reach will fill you with enough motivation to reach it. Nothing else matters, not even your frozen feet and hands, your mind will motivate your body to reach it’s goal you just have to hang in there and keep moving in the dark until the dawn breaks, trust me as endless as the darkness may seem, the sun will rise.
