💙 WALKING 💙
Feeling so very lucky to have this space - to breathe in this air - to sit in these moments where the sunsrays appear to kiss the sea, and the sand, and my heart 💛
I’ve been posting a running diary for someone who asked me to as they’d been getting back into running themselves - However what I haven’t mentioned is that every day for many many months now I’ve been walking. Walking miles and miles. Walking alone mostly, but sometimes when I’m lucky I have a friend to walk with. In these last couple of months I’ve had a wonderful spirited puppy to walk with. Walking has done for me what I imagine running does for a lot of people. It has given me a sense of calm amidst the turbulent mind of overthinking. I always hoped running would give me this but I find my competitive brain goes into overdrive and either tries to run faster than before or berates myself for being too slow .. I am giving myself permission to just be .. whether that be walking, or running, or Yoga. No pressure, no competition, no evil gremlin thoughts.
Today I walked. Everyday I walk. Everyday I feel very lucky that I am able to walk. Everyday I am thankful that I am in a beautiful place to be able to calm the anxious mind with a freedom that’s eluded me in the past.
With love this day x
I love these views day and night 🌄🌃
Night walks are just so pretty from here with all the lights from the city of #worcester 🐕🏃♀️
I like to clear my mind on my walks whether I'm exploring the woods or taking it in up here (I found loads of different routes to get up here too 👣)
I used to be scared of the dark but I've faced it head on with my #furbaby by my side and a flashlight in my hand 🐶🔦
I'm now enjoying the rewards of the dark and it's so beautiful at night. I've seen the beautiful lights of Worcester, Cali and I have seen many foxes both in the day and at night 🦊 I've witnessed a gorgeous sky of stars in Northumberland and as we were so rural it was like being in a planetarium 🌌 and many other to add to my memories 🤔
What do you all do to clear your mind?
