Walking For Fitness

FitnessFriday logoI know things have been a little quieter around these parts this week and while I would have loved to have popped in sooner, it just wasn’t going to happen. Sam was sick this past week so with 50 States events and driving all getting done by me so she could rest, I just didn’t really have time for anything else. When we’d get to our next destination, I’d cook dinner, clean and go to bed exhausted and wake up the next morning and start it all again. I’m happy to say she’s feeling better so things should start returning to normal for me soon. :)

The even better news is that we’ve finally hit some warmer weather and spent the last couple of days walking around warm and sunny South Carolina and Florida.

Next week is jam-packed with events so I’m hoping to get ahead of the game a little bit in this next week!

I’ve been loving the warmer weather, not just because it makes RV life and chores more manageable, but because we’re able to walk around and explore all of these new places we’re visiting. Walking is a great form of exercise and stress relief. While I love an awesome, sweaty workout as much as the next person, sometimes it’s nice to just walk! There’s been a lot of that this week and I’m definitely not complaining.

“Broken Over You” Grace Mitchell

We’ve all had someone that’s made us feel a little broken inside. Whether it be a crush, someone we dated briefly, or the love that we lost. As I listen to “Broken Over You” by Grace Mitchell, I think of those experiences. I think of those guys that I could hardly utter a sound around. The ones that I couldn’t fully let myself open up to. The ones that drove me a little crazy (or rather made me feel a little crazy). And the ones that I wished things would have gone better.

This isn’t meant to be upsetting. In fact, it’s quite far from it. Because as I look back on all of those past relationships and dating experiences, I see why they didn’t work. I see what I needed to learn from them or learn about myself. I see the growth that needed to happen in us (in ME). I see all the wrong place, wrong time.

Yes, I’m still single. Yes, I’m still figuring things out. And no, I’m not in any kind of rush. I know that time and patience and continually doing my thing and living this crazy (and amazing) journey we call life must keep happening. I know that my time will come; the time when I won’t be reading these lyrics and thinking of those in my past. The time when I’ll be able to look this unknown man in the eyes and not feel broken, but rather full of life and love.

I’m sorry…was that a bit deep for a Monday Morning? Sometimes it’s just so marvelous to feel inspired by music that your words just flow. Today’s one of those.

What are you listening to this week?
