This week, some friends and I went on a trip to the mountains. Throughout the week we achieved so many things and it was really fun. However, there were times when we just didn't want to be there. We wanted to get out and go home because it was too hard. We were too tired and our bodies ached.


 You can't go into something thinking and feeling like that. It just won't work. If you tell yourself I can't do this or this is too hard for me, you won't be able to do it. As soon as your head drops and your body moves slowly, it will get harder and harder to move and find the motivation to complete something. As soon as you say I can't do this. I don't want to do this. This is too hard, it will come true. Your mind will believe what you tell it, even though it's not true.


 One of the hardest moments this week was completing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. This is a massive hike up huge hills, rocks, and snow. The weather and scenery completely changed at all times. At one point, we were walking on rocks in the rain and grass in the sun. Then we were walking in soft fluffy snow with the sun still shining. We were hugged by the white cloud as we slid down the mountain. It took us 8 hours to complete the walk. We didn't complete it with our heads down chanting negative thoughts. We only completed the crossing because our heads were up and we were positive.


If you're struggling, keep your head up. Your body will follow. Tell yourself that you CAN do this. Nothing is impossible, the word itself spells 'I'm Possible.' Give it a go. Even if you don't enjoy it, you've still tried it. You can do whatever you dream to do. Even if it seems too hard. Only you can do it.


 Until next time,
