Some people think I hike a lot.
I don’t think I hike enough.
Today was my 16th hike for the year. Which puts me well behind the goal I had at the start of the year.
Which means maybe I don’t hit 52 hikes this year.
But it won’t stop me from getting out and on the mountain.
I’ve come a long way in the last few months in terms of clarity and all the personal turmoil I have been going through.
It’s not a fun journey.
But one thing I can count on is when I am outdoors I feel better, and when I am in the mountains it feels like nothing can touch me.
Which is why I don’t think I hike enough.
There is a clarity that comes to me while I am on the mountain, and life makes sense, and I get super focused and I know what I need to do, not just to complete the hike but to live the most effective life I can.
So my advice today?
Feel the sun shine on your face.
Breathe in some fresh air.
Spend some time in nature.
And just let all the other stuff fall away for a few moments, and appreciate the earth we live on.
It always makes me feel better.
Maybe it will work for you too.
