Day 2- Still Going Strong

Pin It Now! It's Day 2 of my November 31 Day Challenge and today I am crossing off...
27. Take nothing but the stairs and walk everywhere for a day.

Okay- So, I'm on a college campus and walking everywhere is almost a given. But today, while I walk to class, to the Union, to the library, to meet friends, and to study, I am going to focus on relaxing while I walk.
Walking is one of the easiest and most relaxing and cleansing things you can do for yourself.
It's so nice to have time (while it is still nice outside) to clear my head, to get a little light exercise and to enjoy the calm and serenity of nature.

This afternoon, I took a special walk- around some of the less popular areas of campus- to truly have some alone time with my thoughts. I'll leave you with some nice, nature inspiration. :) How do you like my first real shot at photo editing?

Do you spend enough alone time with your thoughts?Do you have a ritual that allows you to get away from the mess and struggle of everyday life?

All too often, we get caught up in the fast-pace insignificant details of life. If we don't pass a test, find a date, eat right or exercise... everything truly seems to fall apart. For me, sometimes it seems like the end of the world is near when I get a B on a paper. (Truly one of the great downfalls of being a perfectionist). We begin to forget to step back and see life for what it really is... a collection of beautiful moments that are waiting to take your breath away.

Step back today. Walk. Find yourself again.

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
2 Corinthians 5:17
