As summer comes to an end, and my time back in California is up – I decided to really appreciate the great outdoors by taking a nice hike not far from my house in the mountains of Southern California.
Know for it’s beautiful creek and waterfall, I hiked up the North Etiwanda Preserve located in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The about an hour hike brought me closer to nature and realization beginning a new school year.
Sometimes you may feel discouraged starting a new school year, but what you do for yourself today will improve all of your tomorrows. If you want something more than anything in the world, YOU CAN do it.
As I reached the top of the mountain, where the water fall rushed down I thought about letting go of all doubts. Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once couldn’t.
I’m challenging YOU (and myself) to stop wishing and start doing! This school year I want to learn everyday and allow the space between where I am and where I want to go to motivate and not terrify me. Let’s climb to the top of the mountain… (well in New York) let’s run up the stairs to the rooftop of the skyscraper!
Can’t wait for this semester! If you are a new reader, my name is Mariano, feel free to read my short about me by clicking THIS link!
