I love the opportunity to “reset” on the weekend. One of my favorite things to do is go for a very long walk with Quill.
My mind has the freedom to be free from distraction and to reflect on life. A lot is going on in this mind right now so my walk yesterday was especially therapeutic.
I thought I would share my reflections with you…
1. Keep moving forward.
2. Don’t dwell on what is behind you.
3. Believe great things are ahead.
4. There is joy in the journey even when the path before you is uncertain.
As I walked, I listened to this new song by Jonny Diaz… Let Faith Move You.
The song has a great line about packing your bags to take a journey of no regrets. What would I pack in my bags? Confidence, hope, faith, trust.
What would you pack?
Keep moving forward!!
Sometimes, a walk answers the questions. Sometimes all it seems to take is a few moments in nature to still your mind and heart.
When I am a mess of emotions and need to process everything I am feeling, I usually do one of two things…Walk/run or write.
February weather has been amazing in my corner of the world, so I have been walking a lot. It is so great to see neighbors who have been cooped up inside out and about, too.
Last night as my feet hit the pavement during a run, I relished the freedom to be lost in my world.
My life is sprinkled with uncertainty right now. I definitely have made strides in my anxiety journey. I am not stressing over all the what ifs, but rather just praying and hanging along for the ride. God has placed some amazing supportive people in my path. I am certainly not alone.
Sometimes, though, being alone surrounded by God’s creation is exactly what I need to remind me that I am not alone on my journey. For me, walking or running and writing are my moments of comfort and strength.
What brings you comfort and strength?
