Walks help me in so many ways...mentally, physically, emotionally. There is something about being outside, alone, and breaking a sweat.
Morning walks are a daily occurrence with my little Lira. She goes gaga over the word walk (in a really high pitched voice)! Heck, she sees me grab my sneakers and she starts jumping up my leg followed by a few figure-8's around the house! Her excitement alone makes me smile!
Nature is beautiful! From the white herons that fly over my head every morning, to the beautiful paintings of the skies, to the glow of the moon, first blooms, falling leaves, vibrant berries in the mist of a brown, I am amazed. We really do have a beautiful, sometimes you just need to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to seeing in a different light.
I foresee many walks in my future. Between not being employed and the change in weather, I know I will need all the fresh air I can get! I'm trying to be proactive and prevent any negative mood swings if possible. I vow to not panic about not having a job until January 2nd. Once January 2nd comes, the job hunt is on big time. If I am lucky, I'll hear back from one of the companies I applied to this week.
If you are traveling for the holidays, I wish you safe travels and happy reunions!
