Last week I enjoyed an aimless walk around the lake. It was exhilarating and all my happy endorphin’s were exploding in my head giving me joy.
For years I have been a walker of aimless and purposeless pursuit and I have never felt guilty about it. Those were the times when I’d spend time with God, thinking, processing, unwinding, debriefing and relaxing.
It has always played an important part of my well-being and gives me a positive thing to do in slowing down in this fast paced world. When I think the pace of this world is maddening to extreme, I walk the human pace and meander through air partials and sun light or overcast. Natural sounds speak to me and my heart beat feels rested in the knowledge that everything is okay.
This frantic pace, this crazy world…..stuff you!!
I slow down and walk aimless; not everything needs to be organised and compartmentalized.
Pick your battles, choose what is important and organised your head to what is needed for your life, not others.
Today I decided to take a walk around the lake. I often find that walking inspires me and makes me feel refreshed. It’s a time where I can calm my thoughts and sort stuff out. Along with being my main type of physical excise, I find that walking also assists in the creative process. I always take my iphone along and for the first time ever I dropped and cracked my screen arrrhhhhh. Never mine, I still got some lovely shots of the lake.
Today I am car-less as my Husband needed the car to attend a training day for his work. My Son’s Grandma took him to school so it’s like a have an almighty free day today. My plan was to take a big walk around the lake which is just down the hill from my place and enjoy a nice rewarding coffee at the funky cafe I recently found.
I woke this morning to a very chilly and windy day and thought I may need to come up with another plan for the day. I decided instead of a big adventure walk that I’ll take a 15min dash down to the local shopping center. I armed myself with my book, took myself to Gloria Jeans and had a lovely morning reading and doing coffee.
I have no shame, yes!!! I am a fair weather adventurer and that’s okay. Well to be kind to myself I had to walk in the freezing cold for 15mins TWICE!!!!
