“It’s not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving. I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together.” ~ Jack Johnson
Jack (like we’re on a first names with each other) sings one of my favorite songs, Banana Pancakes. His lyric from Better Together popped into my head as I thought about tonight’s post, which is perfect for my experience today. No, it wasn’t romantic. Simple friendship, sharing and laughter. A friend asked to exercising with me. Our schedules are crazy so we landed on walking once a week. I forget how much I enjoy connecting. My view can be quite narrow and fixed at times in order to check off my to-do list, or feel like I’m moving faster towards my goals.
One of the things I’m working to do in this lifestyle re-design is to see my life as a whole. To integrate, not compartmentalize, my vision and values. More connection with family and friends is a priority. If I can combine healthy activity and connection, everyone wins. We had a lovely 2 mile walk and chat at the house afterward. I’m thankful to her for reaching out. She, unwittingly, is helping me live into a fuller, richer life. AND gave the end of my day much needed laughter.
Tomorrow’s workout: 3 mile run + strength
