I never believed that something like this could ever happen to me; such a thing that would make me stop and look back at the events in awe. My family and I would always go for a walk in the downtown forest of Coote’s Paradise. I felt completely free from the stress of my life outside of the woods.
I think you would agree that something as simple as being lost in the forest for less than ten minutes should have no influence on my life. There were many times I thought of what could happen if we were to lose our way from the trail and have to live off of the land until we found our way back to civilization. It was this moment that I realized that I would much rather stay here for the rest of my life than go back to society.

There are many opportunities when one can secretly wish for something exciting to happen – something out of the ordinary.
The real surprise is when the wish unexpectedly comes true.
Things like not being able to find your way back to where you came from make you appreciate the little things in life.
Looking back on the day, I realize now that it was fate.
