Motivation: July Hiking Challenge

“The best view comes after the hardest climb” ~ unknown 

I just received my “digital badge” via email from the private Facebook group which I belong to called “Ontario Hiking” for completing July’s ‘Ontario Hiking Challenge’. 

I first told you about this group a year ago after deciding to participate in last summer’s ‘Ontario Hiking Challenge’ (see blog: 

These challenges take place quarterly (January, April, July and October) and are a great motivator for me (not quite yet in January though). All you need to do in order to receive your “badge of honour” is hike (or walk) at least 5 times during those particular months while exploring our beautiful Province.

I’m sure it may sound silly to many readers that receiving some goofy “digital badge” from a Facebook group would get me all excited but motivation in any form can help someone to achieve their goals. 

And right now I need all the motivation I can get as I continue to deal with many life setbacks. Right now I need as many ways as possible to inspire myself to keep moving forward. Right now, more than ever I need all the help I can get in order to follow my growth.

It’s a process, one that has been long and tiresome but I know that the harder I climb the better the view there will be.
