Isn’t it a bit like that when you move out from a place. Especially after being there for two and a half year I feel like it is a bit of a chapter in my life. This morning I picked up the last two pieces we couldn’t fit in the car yesterday (not that I really wanted my mop and bucket after the hours of cleaning) and waived goodbye to my Elwood apartment and home for over two years. Dropped off the keys and let go. I can’t say it was hard to let go, after moving so may times in my life, I don’t really get attached to places and things (except the farm I grew up on, since I lived there for 16 years), so I don’t find it hard to move on. I still like to reflect a little though and appreciate the lessons learnt and the good times I had. Where’s the best place to reflect, meditate and relax? The beach of course! Oh how I’m gonna miss living close to the beach (fingers crossed we’ll find a great place close to the beach when we’re back from Europe) and being able to just walk down to the water whenever I like.
A few things seen on my morning walk;
Did I mention it was a freezing morning walk? It may sound nice with beach, but it can be quite fresh with winds straight from the Antarctic sometimes. But it was great. And I always feel better afterwards; clear mind, lots of energy and a big smile on my face (see above).
I can’t wait for the times ahead, who knows what life will bring. All I know is if life hands me lemons, I’ll bring salt and tequila (or hold on, am I meant to make lemonade!?). So much life to live, so many things to do and so much love to give. And on top of that, it’s Monday today! Don’t you just love life (I am sure if you’re not a Monday person you have stopped reading by now or you are just feeling a little sick)??
Did you make a training plan last week? Did you stick to it? How did you go? Did you do Something Every Day? After my post about Functional Training, I just have to remind you that slicing your own bread might be a tiny physical thing you should do every day, but it does (unfortunately) not count as a whole little workout. Unless you are slicing like 50 loafs of bread, then you might work up a little bit of a sweat. What’s your Something today? I’ve as you know been on a walk already, but I think later on today I want to go for a run outside in my new (temporarily) hood, so I can see if I find a nice running route (if you’re in Coburg, Vic and you have a great route, let me know). The only workout you’ll ever regret, is the one that you didn’t do.
Get out there, make healthy choices and you will feel so much better for it! Happy Monday and remember; A hug (or ten) a day keeps the doctor away!
