A Walk Away

April 25th, 2011

Everything and nothing in particular had me feeling a bit deflated today (mostly my own over-thinking various things I have no control over anyway) and I really wanted to get out of the mood.  It seemed nothing was helping and I’d told myself that I was going to go walking with JJ for 3 or so miles, but Iwas feeling so blah that I’d even talked myself out of that. 

He needed to go out anyway- so I finally decided that while I was out, I’d better make the most of it.  I put on my running shoes and arrived home a little over 4 miles later feeling much better.  The weather was perfect and by the time I opened the door, I felt completely different. 

This is a note to self that when I’m feeling overwhelmed, stressed, in a bad mood or simply deflated- that an attitude adjustment is just a walk away.

    I wish I could “deflate” myself. ( especially when I eat food I know I should not eat !)

    You are right…getting outside and walking, or running,

    or just the mere act of being outside, doing anything will always bring a new outlook for us. :) *hugs*
