A walk along the canal side is always going to bring joy. Last Thursday, the weather turned bright and cheerful, so we set off to walk beside the water to enliven our spirit and enjoy the softness of feeling that being beside water always brings. Come with me as I walk and listen to the sounds of Spring.
I woke up early today, excited about the day ahead. My health and well being are important and it is my job to decide to take care of myself. Its up to me to find the time, the place and the reasons to go for a walk.
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy, or …… I can be thankful that my skin will be blessed with moisture.
Today I can feel sad that I have so many other things to do, or………. I can be happy that I’ll have so much more energy to do them when I’m done walking
Today I can grumble over the temperature, or… I can be thrilled that I’ve got the right clothes to deal with it.
Today I can whine because I have to find the time to walk, or…. I can shout for joy that my body is able to keep pace with my spirit
Today I can mourn my lack of walking partners, or… I can revel in my quiet time alone.
What my health and fitness will be like is, in great measure, up to me. I get to choose my level of well being. I get to lay the plans for a daily walk.
Have a great walk today…unless you have other plans.
