Seems life is in a whirlwind of activities and I find myself graveling between extremes either flying high as a kite or plummeting in a tail spin deep down down down....
One thing I have relied on to plant my feet on the ground breathing for center, is Walking. I received the insight for this blog today, yep, walking. Being honest many of the insights that I have shared over the last several months were birthed while walking.
I had planned on titling this Walking through Divorce because as the long complicated Divorce Process has strangled my life for so many years I have found relief (if you can call it that or maybe temporary insanity suspension) through Walking. As the process went through the various phases so to did my Walking.
Some days I could barely convince my legs to move let along commit to the long Walking. I improvised on those days not doing my usual distance but STILL forcing a "Walk". Some days I could not see through the tears pouring down my face, hoping that no one would see me and want to offer help;as that was what I needed was free release uninterrupted. Other days i prayed people would stay away for fear of blasting them with my rage pouring from the soles of my feet as I pounded cement and got shin splints. Still other times the walking was exhilerating and rejuvenating and inspiring with creativity flowing.
I've had people question me if I need a ride or if I'm training for a marathon or if I'm up to no good. I walked on through a pouring rain storm to find a beautiful double rainbow at the end of my walk. As I stood in such awe dripping wet I was in utter bliss until I remembered I didn't have my camera to get the shot!
I was recently out of town and did not walk for a whole week and my body let me know it. I am back into my routine and ahhhh don't think I can give up my walking. You might think walking for an hour every day is unrealistic but I tell you NOT is unrealistic in these times we find ourselves.
Whether walking away from a closed door, searching for an open door, or better yet Walking Through the threshold give it a try....
You just might find....
