Venture Into The Unknown: Kilimanjaro9:51 AM
As I woke up celebrating my 28th birthday back in March, my heart was sore, limbs felt heavy and most of all vision blurred from the depression that hit me. Many would say it’s nothing too serious and that this is just the blues you go through every single birthday but no this was different. I have never felt like this before as I am the type of person who always makes a big deal out of her birthday and really enjoy the whole fact that I am older since I always tend to be told that I look like a teenager.
It was something about this year that seemed not right to me. Digging in deeper and I realized where I was celebrating my birthday last year; in the middle of an ocean of icebergs, seals and whales. It was a beautiful serene atmosphere where I was introduced to the true meaning of silence for the first time and the definition of spectacular in God’s creation; Antarctica. That birthday stands as the best birthday I have ever had since my existence in this life which explained why I was so low this time around. In my mind, nothing could top that feeling and this void made me explore something that would fill it up so that if I look back to 2015, a year of many changes in my life, a particular experience would stand out.
