Dealing with sticks and stones on our uphill climp TO THE TOP!

     Hello, everyone!  Welcome to November.  The leaves are changing and falling off the trees.  It is getting cooler and extra layers are becoming a necessity.  Do the changes in the seasons/weather have any effects on your moods?  Does the weather make your body ache?  Do you find the time to get outside?  Does it help?

     I was meaning to write about this sooner, but I will just have to rely on my memory.  I went on a hike over the weekend up a STEEP hill.  There were leaves covering some of the rocks and stones so this required 100% attention to detail.

     Every time we went around a bend, I thought we would be reaching the top.  However, every time there was ANOTHER slope, more gravel stones, additional leaves, sticks, and tree branches.

     This time I brought my hiking backpack filled with water and my walking pole.  I stopped periodically to catch my breath and take drinks.  This was definitely a game-changer.  I didn’t stop for very long at all and kept my feet moving in place.  That was all I needed to get my second wind.  I stopped for several “second-winds,” but that was what I needed to do for my body and brain.

     It was tough but the view was amazing at the top.  It was all worth it in the end and it gave me a sense of pride and accomplishment.

     What have you done lately that makes you full of PRIDE and ACCOMPLISHMENT?  

      I hope all of you have a wonderful week and give yourself a pat on the back for making it to ANOTHER MONTH!
