No, people with the worst pasts do end up with creating the best futures! If we use our past as our strength, we can have a beautiful present and future life. It's all about mindset and using your past to create a better future!
I have gone zip lining before but it was more of an obstacle course and less of a longer zipline. Going zip lining over the ocean would be beautiful and really fun because you would land in the ocean and it would just be really pretty and fun!
