Being a mountaineer taught me to live by these mantras:
1. No matter what happens, JUST KEEP GOING. - There comes a time that you will feel being left behind, alone, exhausted and lost in the trail. Do not lose your spirit. Learn to trust yourself because nobody will trust you except you. - You will fall and fail numerous times. Take every fall and every bruise not a reason to back off but an opportunity to learn and to become the better version of yourself. Stand up! Dust off yourself. - Keep your eyes on your goals. Strive to reach the summit. There is no other way but up. You just have to do it the hard way, at times. As Einstein said, "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." 2. COLLECT. WONDERFUL. MEMORIES.
Life is not always a race. Happiness do not always belong to the fastest, it should be a way of life. Smell the flowers, feel the breeze, listen to the nature, break the silence, get lost in the wilderness, dance under the rain, kiss the sunshine and take as many beautiful photos as you can. Memories are lifetime treasure. You have to learn to appreciate every little things around you. Life is just too short for you to ignore them.
3. Lastly, ALL THAT GOES UP MUST GO DOWN.
You are not forever at the top. Summit is not yours. You need to return to where you have started. It is up to you if you will backtrail or take a different path back home. Just like the sun that brings beautiful mornings, all must come to set, gracefully. This is to give the stars their chance to exude their own shine. Live a life. Yes, a purposeful life and learn to share it with others.
