Lake Arrowhead, CA Travel Guide

Perspective in Arrowhead

"I like the green mountains ma" Before heading to Altitude Adjustment (our property in Lake Arrowhead) I was taking my son to preschool when he looked at my coffee mug and said "I like the green mountains ma" . This is the loved mug, the one my husband and I steal from each other, so loved, it's peeling... My son didn't see a mug that was so worn it was peeling, he saw beautiful mountains... Perspective.

These past 2 days at Altitude Adjustment have been filled with perspective. Gratitude in solitude; the gratitude for my life continues to shift my perspective. I left for this trip and immediately, it felt bitter/sweet; bitter because I already missed my beautiful family and sweet because I was about to indulge in solitude. I quickly fell in line with the sweetness of solitude. I was on a hike to "The Pinnacles" and extreme gratitude filled my body, to the point of extreme tears. Solitude is a gift I've enjoyed from the time I was a child but with kids, a husband, running a business and everything else life offers, solitude becomes a challenge. I am grateful for this realization and look forward to intentionally incorporating solitude in my daily life to connect with my inner gratitude voice.
