The Tuesday hiking group is meeting again this morning. They took the summer off and so, Iâ€™m looking forward to joining them and being able to walk in the bush again. We are heading up to Chapman Falls.
Because of all the bears in the area I stick to walking on the sidewalks when I walk by myself. It will be nice to walk with the group and get into the back country again. It will also be nice to re-connect with the friends we made last Fall.
Today, is also the day that I will pass by the 4 million step mark recorded on my fitbit! Four million steps!Â Iâ€™ve been wearing the Fitbit just short of a year now and as of this morning, I only need 9,040 steps to reach the mark.
Iâ€™ve always had a walking practice, but it has taken on more importance to me since we moved to Sechelt. After the year we’ve had â€” Iâ€™m going to echo what SÃ¸ren Kierkegaard said.
â€œAbove all, do not lose your desire to walk. Everyday, I walk myself into a state of well-being & walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. But by sitting still, & the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right.â€
I’m walking here!
