(Listening to Spotify as I write, this song by Lady Antebellum “Run to you” was given to me with perfect timing! I insert “walk” when they sing, “run”. It’s more my style.)
Hearing the call, I ignored it. My day was too busy, too full. I was too tired. My back ached. My knees or hip hurt. It was raining. It was too hot. A body at rest stays at rest. . and I did.
“Get up and walk”
I felt crippled by circumstance. I wasn’t in charge of my own life. I gave my power away. I had nothing left but none of that was really true. I wanted excuses.
“Get up and walk.”
Summer lies before me, pure gift. No more excuses. I have the time. I am in charge. It’s up to me to rise to the occasion. I set the alarm. I wake before it goes off. I tell myself, “Today is a good day.”
