What a wonderful experience! Something like that happened to me yesterday. I have two hills I walk when I take my dog out. I'll stop at the top of the 2nd hill to dispose of doggie business. I decided to walk a little in the park and I discovered that the city had made trails in a half of the park which had not been accessible. It was SO lovely with all the fall colors and so quiet and peaceful. It was like a bonus for a good walk. Let's keep our eyes open for all the beauty around us!

One of those surprises that take your breath away...figuratively and in this case litterely....went out for my walk turned right out of the driveway have only been that way once...encounter a hill keep walking...then the road kind of levels out...I'm just enjoying the beautiful day and the scenary but a few times I notice I'm breathing heavily I just think wow girl you really have to get back to working out. So I come to the end of the road and turn around to walk back the way I came and that was when it happened. When I turned around I was just stunned by the incredible view...I was so high up it was as though I could see the whole valley...the mountains everything. Other than the first hill the climb had been so gradual I didn't realize I was climbing until I looked back and saw how far id come. Isn't that often the case with life we set a goal and we just keeping trudging along and we don't see any real progress till one day we are just blown away to discover all those miniscule often uncomfortable little steps added up and we are so delighted with the view from there. Anyway I probably looked a little looney on the walk back...wearing this insane grin...joy just bubbling out of me and singing at the top of my lungs.....good thing I live in the country not too many people to scare.lol. Anyway was a reminder to me to keep on taking those little steps and to expect wonderful surprises on the journey.
