“The best view comes after the hardest climb.” – Vanessa Gendoma

The best beer is the one you have after the hardest trials and tribulations, whether it is a half marathon, or a day of backbreaking labor in the sun, or the victory celebration after hitting your business goals.

The best burger is after a long hard hike, or after not eating for three days from mouth surgery and it is the first solid food you consume.

The hug after the fight that could have destroyed your relationship.

The success of seeing your work accepted after repeated failures and almost giving up.

Unexpected rewards are always nice, but after struggling and slipping and hurting and almost quitting yet persevering, THAT is the greatest feeling in the world.
