Just walk, and be.

“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. 

And be. 

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.
Happy Walking!

Old n' Bold

When you are old:

More wrinkles   yet   fewer doubts

Looser skin    yet   firmer confidence

Greyer hair   yet   more colorful

older mind   yet   younger spirit

“You may be the only person left who believes in you, 

but it's enough. 

It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. 

Never give up.” 

― Richelle E. Goodrich

Have you noticed that as we get older

there are fewer people who believe in us?

Somewhere along the line, we have to 

accept what others have taught us, and

have showed us, and believe in ourselves.

I haven't posted much lately as I've been

a little busy focusing on myself, spending

a little more time at the gym, and a little

more time on the things that have meaning

for me.

Finding balance between every day life

and the things that enrich the ordinary things

isn't always easy.  We have to make time 

for the things that are important to us. 

Enjoy for now!  More soon, I hope :)
