Question: Write about the role or impact that a certain activity (sports, theater, band, etc.) has had on your life.
Growing up in mountains, my childhood was inherently connected to nature, its moods, and seasons. While walking long distances to school and back I developed an interest in trekking and climbing mountains. During holidays, I trekked to as many places as possible, and every time I enjoyed spending time outdoors close to nature and following the minimalist lifestyle. We used to go on long treks with my family and friends for continuous 10-15 days and find ourselves completely rejuvenated on returning to the routine. Trekking as a hobby has influenced me in numerous ways and it has taught me more than the traditional classroom education ever has. Climbing a mountain can find you tranquility and a sense of achievement when you reach the top. It is an extremely positive experience and I have developed patience, focus, flexibility, and adaptability while trekking. Trekking takes the credit for my never-give-up attitude, my solution-oriented approach, and my confidence.
The love and immense respect for mother nature is another gift that I have received from this beloved hobby. Trekking convinced me that it is important to have a purpose and a passion for everyone. It gives us a direction and a goal to achieve. The goal while mountain climbing is seeing the view from the top-most point but enjoying the journey is important as well. The same applies to real-life situations. I have also been involved in sports, dancing, and other extracurricular activities, but trekking has always been my favorite and is an inextricable part of my life. I associate trekking with boundless happy memories which I consider as true happiness. I have always found immeasurable satisfaction in climbing mountains and I will grab all opportunities to trek to a beautiful mountain.
