Just Go.

This post is mostly for me. Sorry.

I need something to go back to, to remind myself of what I often allow myself to become too busy or distracted or exhausted to recognize. I've done it so many times before, and I know myself well enough to know that I'll do it again. And again.

But maybe this will help me remember a time or two.

With that in mind, Kim:

When things are going north, go for a walk. Bring the dog with you. It will be fun, and you'll feel better, and that graph will get whipped back into shape. You'll feel better tomorrow, and have better numbers, and probably be a little less tired too, although I know that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Just go for the walk.

Just go.


  1. I'm going to print this out, cross out your name and replace it with mine, and tape it to the walls in my office, my bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room.

    That's not creepy, is it?

  2. No more creepy than the fact that a few minutes ago I thought, "I haven't heard from Jacquie in a while, and I miss her".

    True story.

  3. I think we all need to hear it. Um, yeah, I will need to hear it after I finish eating this breakfast I just made. A bagel. Regular plain bagel. Full carb bagel. Both sides of the bagel with a thin layer of cream cheese. Let's not count those carbs. *sigh* Guess I'll be going for a walk right after breakfast, huh?

  4. I needed to hear that too.

  5. I was just sitting here on the computer trying to decide if I should go for a walk or take a nap because I'm sooo tired. Guess I'm walking ;) Thanks Kim

  6. This reminds me of my efforts to learn to meditate a bit. I've been taught that when I get distracted, just let it go and return to following my breath. Get distracted, let it go, return to following my breath. Get distracted, let it go, return to following my breath.

    The basics are basics.
