So...I've been walking...

As I mentioned, I'm baby-stepping my way back to healthy habits. I also mentioned that I've been in a funk. This week I decided that one step I could take toward a healthier lifestyle and feeling better would be to begin walking again. So I've been walking to work in the mornings. Nothing drastic or demanding....simply walking a mile to work.




This morning I was walking. I was simply walking along in the crisp, cool, morning air, my face turned upward toward the sun, feeling the warmth, both on the skin of my face and in the depth my heart, when all of the sudden I realized it felt good.....I felt good. And then I remembered why I began walking in the first place, several years ago. I remembered another time when I turned my face to the sun and warmed my skin and my soul...and I remembered the hope it gave me then...

Yes, I remembered and I felt joy..
