All of the things we can miss
So, it is 2019 and one of the things that I would like to improve upon is simply saying, ‘yes’ more frequently. Like most people, I think, I tend to stay in my lane and will rebuff opportunities that require me to take a path less traveled. Simple example, I am a runner who can log dozens of miles in the course of a week, but if I am asked to simply go on a walk, I tend to decline the offer. No good reason why, I just have never particularly enjoyed strolling about. The problem with this behavior is that I don’t even know what I am missing by making these choices.
This weekend, Christy asked me to walk with her and like always, my initial inclination was to decline. The weather was cold, grey and uninviting, but I grabbed my camera and decided to say yes. Within 10 minutes of walking, the sun parted and we were presented with a wonderful display of evening color. It felt validating and that I am on the right track with this year’s shift in perspective.
