I believe….

I believe that everyday should be lived to the fullest. Today, as I was sitting at the bottom of a waterfall on a huge boulder, I decided that I would climb to the top just to prove to myself that I could do it. This can be described as a never moment situation. When you are looking at someone or something and say “I could never do that.” As I made my way up the hill, hanging on tightly to the rocks and roots, I realized that I had the freedom to do anything I wanted. Finally, after getting a rush scaling the mountain I made it to the top of the waterfall. The pools of water above the falls were very peaceful, I had made it. Sitting atop the falls I thought to myself, will I be able to make it to the bottom again? Then I remembered that anything is possible and life should be adventurous and lead to the fullest. You never know when your time will be, so enjoy everyday to the fullest with the ones you love.
