Are you rushing from here to there? Life too often becomes a Mad Hatter dash. Take a break and make time to walk, wander, and wonder.
To strengthen your being: consciously slow down, take small steps, look deeply at all that is around you. Stop every now and then to then smile gently, and say a quiet “Thank you. ”
Kindness improves emotional fitness and the ability to withstand life’s bad times. You can practice kindness right now by liking, commenting, or sharing this post.
Thank you and work at staying strong until next time. I work on doing that all the time.
This Poster was inspired by this WordPress Daily Prompt:
Trains, Planes, and Automobiles – You’re going on a cross-country trip. Airplane, train, bus, or car? (Or something else entirely — bike? Hot air balloon?)
Obviously, walking is my preferred style. Were I younger I would like to hike cross-country. As it is we go by car and take the by ways.
We have found that as Mark Twain noted, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
