There are times where you wish to give up.
There are times where you wish to succeed.
There are consequences to both choices
Becoming either good or bad but at this very moment we choose
To not give up and I speak For all that the consequences
To this was the best of all.

It's amazing! Yosemite Valley, as beautiful as the pictures but even better up close. The mountains as high as the big blue sky. The pine trees as green as can be. The view as pure as a newborn baby. Yosemite is the place to be. Squirrels running across the lawn. Deers by the tree. Yosemite has life. Yosemite is free.

So today is my second day here in Yosemite and being outside just feels amazing. The wind blows which feels so refreshing. The views so clear and so pure. Also very close. My eyes take awe to all the views that are here. I look forward to many more views.

So today we went on a hike... Off trail. We first split the group into 2 groups. We then walked to fill our water jugs and then we learned a bit about the compass. WE WERE OFF!! We walked for about and hour and a half until we found lost lake. We got lost but it was an adventure. We got to use a sexy rock as a slide and we saw many more interesting plants.

It's hard not to be inspired up here.

In life we always have 2 sides
The good and the bad
A hint to remember
Never show the bad to a person
Even when the bad is shown to you
There might be a reason why they're bad
But if given good to them
They may reflect it back on others

best weapon in life?
it's not a gun
it's not a bomb
it's not your fist
it's not even your words
the best weapon in life is a smile
it's used to say hello
it's used to say goodbye
the smile is the signal that you're moving on
so when a challenge comes along
smile and move along

Self Discovery:
People wander into the
Woods to find beautiful
Views but the most
Beautiful view they can
Find is one within

Nobody is ever alone
Can't you see it?
Trees live in groups
Rocks live in bundles
Animals live in families
That includes us
So whenever you feel lonely, sad and depressed
Remember we are your family
So we are here for you
Anytime, anywhere, anyplace
