I may not be setting personal best. I definitely am not improving my pace. Yet, I am definitely getting a stronger mind.
This Sunday morning I went for a walk. My goal: to go a couple of miles.
I picked up my phone and put on some praise and worship and headed out the door to commune with the Creator in nature. My neighborhood, but nature is very much around.
I walked passed squirrels and a fat chicken with furry feet. I saw flowers blooming and trees burdened with blossoms.
I purposely did not use my Runkeeper app or any others (except Fitbit your steps don’t count if you don’t have your Fitbit, can I get a whoop whoop!) I didn’t look at my Fitbit but once to see if I was close to the miles I wanted.
I walked and walked and I sang out loud to some worship music and I smiled and saw all that was good around me. I was thankful that I had the energy to walk. That I wasn’t nauseous or dizzy or delirious.
I had bathed myself in sunblock and wore extra apparel to prevent sun burn. I sang again, and smiled in the beauty of the day.
I may not have beaten any of my my past records for walking. I certainly did not jog or wog any of the route, but I hit the 3 mile goal I wanted. I hit it and felt good. I hit it and felt strong. I hit it and still had energy and a smile and a mindset that I am doing good for myself.
My mind is strong. My body will follow. I will rejoice in all the good in life. I will continue to praise. I will continue to share the joy!
And yes I did say a chicken with furry feet! Someday I will get a picture!
You are stronger.
