There’s nothing better than a spring morning around the marshes in Charleston, South Carolina. Last week, I walked along the marshes at the county park. The birds were out. The sun was out. I was out with them. It felt so amazing.
Somewhere past my pause on the fishing dock over the water and before I looped back to my car I started wondering why? Why don’t I do this more often? Why are walks like this so few and far between? Why don’t I take time out to stop to enjoy the sunshine, the breeze, each step.
“Angels Whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.” – Raymond I. Myers
These 30 Days have shown me that I owe myself a chance to hear the angels whisper, that I should step out more often. Moving needs to be a priority, yes. But more than moving, I should be moving with purpose, walking for more than the sake of walking.
I should walk to look for creativity, to clear my mind, to sort out big decisions, to hear the birds sing.
I need to walk to push myself, to calm and soothe and reset my mind.
I need to walk to feel sunshine and the wind. To see the world and enjoy my neighborhood.
I need to walk to hear angels whisper. That is a step in the right direction.
So tell me, why do you walk?
