Imagine your drive to work or to school. You recognize the streets, some landmarks and that’s it. Now try walking some of that. I bet you’ll miss the turn, or not recognize the area. This has happened to me. I did it once when I had to walk the 3 miles it was to school because my car broke down. It seemed easy enough to drive, but when I walked, I almost didn’t make the right turn.
When you’re walking, you can absorb almost everything. Slowing the commute down gives more of an appreciation of your surroundings. Things can become more beautiful or even uglier than you thought. It’s really amazing. Try taking a walk now and then. Get outside and soak in your surroundings. You may be surprised.
I did a walk here in my grandparents neighborhood. It’s a little lake community where all the houses are 100% different and the properties are all unique. It’s quite the walk.
Just feeling insightful, that’s all.
In fact, I was 6 feet away from a deer on my last one! Those animals are cute!
