Take your moments when you can.
Apr 03, 2016
Today I went on a easy run around the neighborhood.
It didn't matter how fast I was running or how far I was going. All that mattered was that I was out and about. Moving through the streets and walkways of an area that is home to me and my family. I listened to the wind and animals. I listened to the cars and landscaping. I watched the other people as I passed them by and I noticed the birds in the sky. I have plenty of things I could be doing instead. More than enough 'busy' to fill a 30 hour day actually. But on my run I just have the moment, the movement, the flow of life. I am not running after something or away from another. I am running with everything and for nothing. It brings me present and gives me perspective on the moment and the day.
So my wish is that you go out there and have an 'easy run' of things today, even if only for a moment. Maybe it is a deep breath and a gaze to the horizon. Perhaps noticing the warm touch of the sun on your face or the cool breeze that washes it away. It could even be a quiet cup of coffee in corner shop or taking a few moments to reflect on something or someone that you love. Whatever it is, I say grasp it and let it clear you.
After all, a fresh perspective can make even 30 hour days seem a little more doable. :)
