A Simple Walk Can Do So Much for the Soul

This will be a simple post about a simple concept: taking a walk.

I have the tendency to over-complicate things. I give myself more goals than I can realistically accomplish. I’m a perfectionist, so I not only want to accomplish all of my goals, but I also want to make sure that I get all of the details right. And I want to have a fun time doing it all.

I don’t think I’ll ever stop caring about getting things done, but I try to take breaks from the over-complication. Today, that involved taking a walk.

It was a lovely day, and I enjoyed feeling the sun and the breeze. The sky was a bright blue, and the tranquil water nearby made a gentle lapping sound.


I smiled at my baby. She smiled at me. We enjoyed looking up at the trees and being in nature together.


It was a good reminder to appreciate the quiet and simple aspects of life. They matter just as much as the exciting days and the complex plans.

Sometimes life is simply about putting one foot in front of the other and enjoying the view.
