'No matter how you feel. Get up, dress up, show up and never give up.' Good Advice. Honestly, giving up doesn't come naturally to me. Last month, while in New Zealand we hiked a mountain. Granted, it was a small mountain. Good thing it wasn't a big one. I know my limitations. I am decently fit for my age but this hike was difficult. It took us four hours to get to the top. At that point, I was exhausted and my feet were blistered. Nevertheless, I persisted and made it to the top. Strike that off my bucket list. It took three hours to get back to the car. My feet were agony but I did not give up! Yay me!
