|From the top looking down|
For most, standing on the Great Wall would be a challenge on its own. Looking down, the height difference would probably scare most people, especially those who were afraid of heights. For me, the height difference made me feel like I was flying. Standing amiss the towers and bricks, it made my problems seem so small compared to the never-ending steps. I always thought that people were exaggerating when they used phrases like that but now, I could finally experience it. The vast blue sky, never-ending stretch of steps, tall towers made me feel so small, so insignificant in the background. My spirits lifted after climbing the Great Wall. Unsure if it was finally understanding the phrase or the rush of adrenaline, but I felt much better than I had for the past few days.
