Weekend Wisdom: Maybe it’s not about doing the most with our time, but instead making the most of it.
I’m thinking about then and now.
Bailey and I recently recorded a new Soul & Wit Podcast episode about where we were in our lives and work this time last year and where we are now. I was reminded about how essential my daily walks were then. Simply noticing the trees, flowers, sky, and other beautiful things that were still flourishing amidst so much pain invited me out of mine. From neighborhood walks to hiking in the mountains, every step grounded me and wrapped me in presence and gratitude.
And now, my daily walks are just as meaningful. Now though, they are less of an escape and more of a ritual or practice of connection. Sometimes that connection is to someone I’m walking with or someone I’m chatting with but usually it’s a direct connection to me; to knowing who I am, to trusting myself, to a stunning feeling of … this is everything … this is enough.
