Of all the paths you take in life make sure one leads you to the mountains. As we enter a New Year, I would love for you to consider the place that brings you joy and fills you with happiness. For me, it is the mountains. I have been fortunate enough to spend the first week of 2023 in the mountains of Mammoth Lakes California and I could not be happier. It is my happy place.
I came to Mammoth Lakes with my family for a yearly ski/snowboard trip, but unfortunately, I am unable to snowboard this year. It’s a long story about an old worn-out knee that I am rehabbing, but I am still here in the mountains which I love. I would much rather be better at the top where I feel like I am on top of the world, but I will settle for simply being part of their spiritual energy and wonder.
I am not sure what it is about the mountains. Maybe it’s the spectacular views you can only experience from the top, their presence, or the comfort I feel being surrounded by something so much bigger than myself. I can never really put my finger on it. I just know in my heart it is the one place I have been in my life where I feel like I can breathe!!
Being on top of a mountain is the most peaceful place I have ever been. It fills my heart with pure joy and peace. There is something special about the mountain air and energy that causes me to pause and reflect. When I am in the mountains, I gain clarity and insight about life that I cannot seem to get anywhere else.
I could go on about how I feel about being here, but I want to ask you to think about your happy place.
Where is it that you have been where you are filled with peace, love, and comfort? Then go there. Don’t ignore the feeling, it is intentional for your soul. Your intuition is guiding you there for a reason. You do not have to have clarity or certainty about the why, just allow yourself to go. Go wherever you are drawn to because being in your happy place will reenergize you and fill your heart with joy.
My path leads me to the mountains. Where does your path lead? Where do you want to go, even just for a short while where you feel like you can breathe? This is important for you as a human and a leader. When you ignore the signs of your intuition and what your soul needs to reenergize you will feel unbalanced. To be a better human and leader find your happy place.
