My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

If I could take tomorrow off of work, I'd...

I'd go hiking! I love to hike away from the "real" world. When I start hiking, I feel all tense and excited about leaving my worries behind. I enjoy doing hikes where there are scenic moments to take my mind off how tired I start feeling. Once I get past that tired feeling and get my second wind, I really start to enjoy myself. I start paying attention to all the details around me by not just seeing the beautiful things, but smelling the air around me, hearing the noises that surround me, and feeling the breeze on my face. I start realizing that whatever was making me tense or worried, is nothing in this great miracle that God has given us. Again I remind myself, if God can do all this, how could I forget that he is taking care of me too? Suddenly, with my heart light, I don't feel a bit tired. I feel energetic and ready to face whatever life has in store for me. If I could take tomorrow off of work, I'd definitely go hiking!

I hope you get to go hiking soon! I hope tomorrow is a better day for you even if it doesn't involve hiking!

Oh I love hiking, there is something magical about getting away from in all just on your feet, nothing mechanical. Hope you get the chance!

This sounds like a great day off, Pat--hope you get to do it soon! Hiking is something I've always wanted to try, and definitely a goal once we get to SC.

I think walking is a great way to clear the head.. I love bushwalking (as we call it) but rarely get the chance as dh isn't keen and the kids can't walk too far. Hope you get that holiday day real soon!!

That sounds so peaceful and relaxing. Good for the body and soul. Hope you get to do that soon.

Sounds like a great way to spend the day. I haven't been hiking since the boys were born.
