Aging on my terms - Daily musings in 500 words or so

Let’s do this together video – this is for you

I didn’t want to work out today. I’m dealing with some very strong emotions about something I found yesterday…something I wrote years ago. But, I put my tennis shoes on and headed out the door to go for a walk.

It’s a bright, sunny 68 degrees here and everywhere I walk there is beauty all around me. I end up messing up my workout app because I keep stopping to take pictures. 

This morning was no exception…My morning walk

beauty all around

I got a brisk 30 minute walk done, but was still consumed with my emotions. I almost took my shoes off and called it quits, but then I ended up talking to a friend on the phone for a bit.

I found energy from our conversation and forged ahead with the rest of my workout.

Moral of the story: if you are struggling, go for a walk, call a friend, look in the mirror, and do something good for you.

      No, the first one is a Marguerite Daisy and I believe the second is an Echinacea.
