And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had the familiar conviction that life was beginning again with the summer.
I sound poetic don't I? Well, that's because I didn't write the above sentence. It is a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald's book called "The Great Gatsby". I quoted that because I think it kind of go well along with this post. Northern Ireland's Summer 2015 has been dreadful and whenever it's sunny, my parents and I are either stuck at work or just exhausted.
However, the day when we went to Giant's Causeway was different; we were all energised and the giant spotlight in the sky was out. But to be honest, we just planned to go to Portstewart Beach on that day and going to Giant's Causeway just kind of happened unexpectedly.
I got a chance to climb up a mini-mountain (is there such thing?) well, it wasn't a hill either (or was it?) I don't know how to define it but my dad, my brother and I climbed it up anyway- I climbed it wearing a maxi dress. It wasn't scary but it was heart-pounding but, that didn't matter because my goal was to climb to the top.
As I am writing what I experienced right now, I just realised that no matter how terrifying the journey is in life, it wouldn't matter especially if you are focused and well-determined of your goals.
