Last week I took another stand. Just sort of fed up with how I have been feeling, how my clothes are not fitting and stuff so many of us experience. I decided to start moving again. I have been taking small walks. Just to get out and get some fresh air and vitamin D. The first day I walked with littlest and only girl. As we were walking with great intent I spotted a feather. I said "oh I want to pick up that feather so bad" And her response was this "why don't you?" "Well I have a mission, my mission is not to be distracted but to just briskly walk" I love the minds of youth because then she says this "but you love to pick up feathers, so why not pick it up?" And that's when the light-bulb went on. She is so right. I love to find feathers, hearts and watch shadows and smile at birds. I'm out walking and that's the most important part. I can walk and still do the things I love because if I stop doing the things I love that's when I stop liking my walk. So this week I collected all the things above in this picture. Look I even found a broken heart. I saw a monarch butterfly, a flying grasshopper, a dragonfly and lot of sparrows. I know my path can be boring, I walk the same loop over and over and it also has trash and dead grass and dirty sidewalks with dog poo but I still find some really cool little treasures right? So believe me I KNOW how hard it can be to just walk out the door and move a little. I'm taking it so slow. Normally I would beat myself up over that too, like it's just not good enough, I should be doing more but I'm doing far more than I was sitting in front of my computer screen, of having my feet kicked up with a glass of wine while I mindlessly watch reality t.v. as HOME DEPOT SAYS....LET'S DO THIS!
