I am good at being persistent, being resilient, risk taking
I solo hiked the Johm Muir Trail. I was alone throughout the entire trail but I didn’t feel lonely. The wilderness can be a scary place but I was cleansed of all my fear. The hike was the most exhausting trip I’ve ever had but I was not exhausted. I was out of food, and when a trail maintainer shared some of her food with me I cried because I knew I was in the presence of human nature at its best. Having scraped rock bottom, I know that when human fallibility is met with kindness, it is to be acknowledged.
I was so tired sometimes that simply sitting down became a luxury. After finishing the trail on the summit of Mount Whitney, I finally understood what it meant to truly appreciate life. I became aware of my ignorance towards the wonders of living, but I know better now.
