I loved the movie  Wild, loved it !   It had my favorite two things in it, nature, ( in its awe, breath taking scenery)  the Pacific Crest Trail, and then the beautiful biographical story of Cheryl Strayed,her personal struggle, hike of  her life.  To take a 3 month hike alone takes balls, it is the ultimate survival challenge.  It is gutsy to want to stop and face your pain, to figure out why you made poor choices or what caused you to take a hurtful, harmful path.  I am a big advocate for self reflection, analyzation, trying to become the better you.  Learning to see and really appreciate all the beauty around you. That some of our ugly or less imperfect choices are what makes us that much more beautiful in our growth, or part of it.

We all have times that we wonder why certain situations happen to us, some are devastatingly traumatic and we may never fully recover, however, we have to strive to be the best version of ourselves.
