One of my favourite things to do over the weekend is to take a long walk. If I'm really lucky (and my husband can mind the kids for a little while) a walk all on my own. Bliss! I just love walking around where we live. Taking the time to unwind from all the busyness of life. To take in the beautiful countryside and really appreciate my surroundings. Breathe in the sweet air, which smells at it's most amazing after a storm. Sometimes I talk out loud to myself (am I the only one who does that?), which is fine because there are only the cows to think I'm crazy. I'm sure they think I'm a bit bonkers, but at least they can't tell me so!
It helps me to feel ready for the week ahead, as well as enjoying the moment I am in. Sometimes life just seems to move too fast, doesn't it?
On my walk today, I pushed myself through the grass to the top of the big hill where I could look out over the valley. When I reached the top I was filled with gratitude. Nature has this amazing way of reminding us to live every day and embrace the life we are given. And just like that I feel ready for the week ahead.
Do you like to walk? How do you like to recharge yourself at the end of the week?
