It was just us there standing by the viewpoint on a sunny afternoon at the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park in Spain.
I could hear the waves, the seagulls and my heart beating. I should have been scared of the unknown waiting for me at home once this road trip was over but instead I felt hopeful.
I found hope as I looked out to the horizon because I finally understood the purpose behind the magnitude of the battles I fought up to that point.
Fast forward to today, I find myself foolishly forgetting this every time I stare at the peak that I have to climb once again.
I know that I’ll get there eventually. I also know that when I do, I’ll be smiling like the time these photographs were taken because all this right now will finally make sense.
Please remember that.
