“Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone.
Start walking and keep walking
until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand,
because we walk the same roads day in and day out,
to the bus and back home and we cease to see.
We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking
and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice.
Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t.
Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t.
And that’s the point.
Just walk, see, sit down if you like.
Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have,
and realize that that is enough to be happy.
There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window.
You’d be a fool to miss it.”
― Charlotte Eriksson
There's a whole world out there,
and these feet are tired from all
the walking lately. I'm averaging
11k steps per day, 5+ miles a day.
So I took a few minutes
to pamper myself
and decorate my toes.
