The Walk of Life

Peace, Love, and Craziness…
That is what she said, and she is right. I love it when people put a big concept in a neat little container for me. I love neat little containers.
2010 is all about peace, love, and craziness.
Life is for the living, and I think I could do a bit better. If I were to make a list of the top ten things that make me happy, and then look at how often these things occur, I don’t think the numbers would speak favorably sports fans!
Here is the interesting thing…the only barrier usually is just me and making the choice to take time for these windows of joy shining in.
I am intentionally swinging the windows wide open and sticking my face out to absorb every bit of joy that happens by…
My first joyful venture has been the decision to begin walking at least 3.5 miles everyday outside despite crazy cold in Kansas City right now.
I decided to walk a 5K in January, a 10K in February, and a half marathon at the end of March.
Just seemed like a funny thing to start in the middle of the cold that I generally avoid…and doing funny things makes me laugh…and I do so love to laugh!
Off I go, to shake what Mama gave me…out in the Kansas City cold;)
