My walk this morning (blogging late here, this was Monday) reminded me of the pleasure of taking the same walk every day. It means I'm a lot more disciplined - my walks tend to be about the same length every day, about 45 minutes. I've started running just a little bit each day - some days more, some days less - not pressuring myself or being competitive (very difficult for me not to do), but just trying to enjoy the time. I've always liked running, and would love to get back into it if my health will allow. No matter how full my mind is, the second I move from even fast walking to running, it's like the mind gets wiped blank, in a good way. Suddenly all there is to focus on is the next, next, next step...and all the things I need to do and places to go and people to see drifts away. And I'm actually getting a break.
Enjoy your own tea today!
