With Time

You really meant to get to where you were going, fast. You had a goal and wanted to be “on time.”

But, when out of the corner of your eye, this perky, colorful, vibrant, gentle plant called your name, what could you do but listen! You wanted to be polite, after all. So you stop to say hello. To admire her a little. To tell her how beautiful she is and how much it means to you to have a moment with her.

Dear Nasturtium. You have slowed me on my very important mission and I feel SO much better because of it. Thank you, my beauty, for reminding me of the value of being with time, rather than in the frenzy of being on time. Nasturtium power ✨

Tiny Moments

Tiny moments.

One of the many beauties of walking, is receiving the gift of tiny moments. The ones you pass by without so much as a glance, every day.

Here’s this tiny moment when you find yourself eye to eye, beak to beak, with a mini being, who in another setting, would be totally annoying with its pesky buzzing. Yet here, now, on this quiet, foggy morning, you discover a shared existence with this itsy bitsy teensy weensy larger than life, earth partner. In this fraction of a moment, you get to glimpse the connection with all life.

All because you listened to the whispered call of the universe while out for a walk.

The Thing About Walking

Walking can get a bad rep. There seems to be this idea floating around that walking is just a means to an end; a way to get from point a to point b.  Well, of course it is, but in this hurried life, it might not feel fast enough because we want to get there – now. So, we end up hurrying from here to there, missing everything in between with the takeaway that walking is inconvenient because it’s just too slow.

Enter the real walking. The thing about. Walking. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with yourself, connect with others, connect with nature. To get your muscles moving and your heart pumping.

When you step out for a walk with no end game, life feels different. No rush of time, no place to “get” to. You can be as slow (or as fast) as you want. It’s wonderful to take it easy and be open to moments that show up

Invite Exploration. Awaken Joy

“It has been three weeks now. Every day first thing, I throw on my clothes and get myself out the door to meet my friend for a 20-30 minute walk. I feel in doing so I have accomplished an important goal, so that anything else is a bonus. WomenWalking has been an important support for me in taking the hardest step, out my door.”  -Kama M., member

 

In the noise and busyness of today’s pace, there are times when you just need to take a break. Do it. Put on your shoes, sling wide the door, feel the light shine on your face and start walking. One foot in front of the other. One step at a time. Walk alone. Share it with a walking partner. Meet up with a group and walk. Be kind
