Laughing All the Way to the Mountain: Embracing Life's Absurdities.

"Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tuohu koe, me he maunga teitei."

Translation: "Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain."

👋Kia ora!

Picture this: you're on a quest to chase your wildest dreams, and your ultimate goal is perched at the peak of a mountain that seems to touch the heavens. It's like trying to snatch a shooting star – dazzling but seemingly unattainable.

Now, here's where the adventure takes a hilarious twist. The path to that lofty mountain is less of a red carpet and more of a comedy club stage. You'll encounter roots that trip you up like practical jokers, compasses that double as stand-up comedians (forget North; they've discovered a new direction, 'Dance'), and those boulders. Well, they're notorious for being the strong, silent type – silent until you challenge them, that is.

But here's the beauty of it: the Māori proverb is your comedic GPS. It's like having a stand-up comedian as your guide. "When seeking treasure," it says, "let's aim for a mountain, not a shoelace disaster!" After all, it's a much grander story to tell at the next campfire.

So, you trudge on, fueled by determination, stubbornly humorous resolve, and the expectation of encountering a loquacious pebble along the way. Every misstep becomes a punchline, every wrong turn a plot twist.

And when, at long last, you stand atop that monumental mountain, you don't just find your dreams; you discover a treasure trove of resilience and humour. It's like reaching the end of an epic comedy show, and the applause and laughter are your rewards. You've conquered your journey, embraced the absurdity, and had a good chuckle with life's quirks.

So, remember, life's journey may be the funniest comedy you'll ever star in. Keep your head high, embrace the laughter, and chase those dreams, even when they're being the most elusive stand-up act in town! 🏔️😄🎉

Love your guts! Shel 💚
