Before I continue on to the rest of my long list of to do’s on this Tuesday, I just had to stop and share a piece of my morning here.
It was an extra beautiful morning in Las Vegas. The weather forecast says the day is to be cloudy with isolated thunderstorms. At 8:30 AM, I decided to enjoy the 60° that will soon be replaced with triple digit temperatures.
After the kids hopped on the bus, equipped with my comfy running shoes, and my hair pulled back in a ponytail in a hat, my cane and I headed out for a stroll. This Greenbelt (featured in the photo above) is one of the things I love most about our neighborhood. It’s green grass, smooth pavement, lush trees, and sound and smells of spring kept me company.
When I noticed my mind was starting to race back to those to do list items, I plugged in my earbuds and turn on my current book of choice on mindfulness, “Search Inside Yourself,” google’s book on emotional intelligence. Instead of picking back up where I left off last, I went back a ways. I think it’s going to take me a while to finish this book since I keep doing that. Anyhow, as I approached the gate to my community, I heard this quote and thought how fitting to attach it with this photo I snapped during my walk.
“, what lies behind us, and what lies in front of us, are tiny matters to what lies within us.” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
I’m choosing to keep this handy in my collection of quotes. It’s especially going to help with propelling me along this Sunday as I run my first half marathon.
Tuesday tip, if you don’t have extra time in your day to fit in a stroll, just take two minutes to just be. Just be. Don’t do, or think, or plan, or be stuck in your head. Just, “Be…”
