- Yosemite National Park
I've never felt so accomplished in my life. For once I'm enjoying the beauty of life and not the materialistic hype behind it. Sitting above the cloulds makes me feel like an ant, so small and blind to what life has to offer me. These mountains give me goals to reach and these trees air to breath. I'm a young man who at one point just wanted to quit. But I realize I really have never began. I feel I can do anything I set my mind to...so I shall.
My favorite part of this week was definitely finding a little bit of myself in Yosemite. I've totally learned to appreciate myself more as a person. I've learned to not take nature and life as a joke or to take advantage of it in any way. I've learned life's a blessing and a curse in itself, it just all depends how you make it.
