"Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands resistance." ~Steven Pressfield
Those 72 hours were without question some of the most profound and challenging hours I've had. After climbing 5000 ft through alien landscape in 6 hours, we setup camp above the clouds to prepare for the final accent of the 2nd highest volcano in Indonesia, starting at 3am.
The moment we reached the summit and gazed across the volcanic landscape, waiting for the bringer of life to crest the horizon, tears started flowing. That moment, or collection of moments changed my life forever and was a reminder that everyone of us is capable of overcoming FAR more than we think if we commit to staying positive, no matter how dark things may seem.
I know some of you reading this may be going through some dark times. Hang in there, do what you can do right now to better you're position even slightly(that could mean drinking more water or just turning your electronics off and going to sleep), and BELIEVE without a doubt that everything will eventually work out, because it will.
*HUGE shout out to my brother Phil for recommending us this climb and also Hajar Trekking for putting together such an amazing experience. Check our IG and FB stories to get an idea of the journey. Love and gratitude to you all.
