It seems so simple.
Once we’re adults, walking has pretty much become 2nd nature. (At least for me anyway.)
We can walk and do other activities, multi-tasking while walking.
Chewing bubble gum. Talking on our phones. Chatting with a friend.
Drinking tea. Holding a baby. Shopping. Eating.
We don’t take much time to think about just how simple, yet extraordinary the act of walking is.
Yet, there are many lessons to be learned from walking. After all, it is a continuous falling and picking yourself back up.
The truth is that we fall multiple times daily and we don’t even realize.
But we always manage to pick ourselves up, don’t we? It’s how we get ourselves from our current location to our destination. From point A to point B. From our now to our later.
It’s pretty fun to think of walking in that way. A continuous falling and getting back up. I feel like a super hero or something! Like my daily life is full of struggle, but I manage to get up. Keep going. Ending the day with a smile. (And a lap around the moon, or something. 🙂 )
The art of walking relates to life in so many ways.
We struggle. We’re overtaken with temptation. We get our hearts broken. We create our own pain and misery by allowing untrue & negative thoughts to make home in our minds. We get caught doing something we know we shouldn’t have.
But we’re strong. We don’t give up.
After all, giving up would just cause us more pain. Quitting causes us to become stagnant in life. To quit growing. To get rusty. Our physique softens. Our minds weaken. We’re not as sharp, not as quick.
So we get back up.
We pick ourselves up off of the floor. Wipe off the dirt. Shake the dust away.
And we become free.
Free to move, and run.
Free to soar above the earth and the trees, into the universe. Into the unknown.
Life then becomes more magical. More adventurous.
And that’s when we truly find ourselves.
But it all starts with the simple act of falling and getting back up. The simple act of walking.
When you go to walk today, gently remind yourself that today is a gift.
That today is magical.
And then find that magic. Find the magic in walking.
This is what true health is all about. To keep going. To keep motivation and inspiration at their all-time highs, so that we can make the most out of life.
So we can make a difference.
True health has no bounds. There are no rules.
And these guidelines are all personal. No 2 people are alike. What makes me feel great, may not be what makes you feel great.
There is no one-size-fits-all plan.
There is only you. And your body. And your mind. And your spirit. And your soul.
And YOU get to decide what feels right. What is the best for you.
You are the only one who answers to yourself, and what a beautiful thing!
So find what’s right for you. Help yourself. Get help and healing and inspiration from others who have been there before. Find your voice. And take note to what feels great, and what feels less than great.
Go now, my dear friend.
And find YOUR true health. <3
