Today, I took the first step back to normalcy by getting out for s short hike. I took my camera in hopes of getting some good wildlife shots, but the birds stayed in the trees. Give the tough week I had at work, and personally, the fresh air and sunshine improved my outlook on life. The woods are my escape from the real world and during these trying times, escapism can do wonders.
While sitting by a pond and only able to hear the birds and the wind rustle through the trees, I realized that I need to eliminate the word “should” from my vocabulary. “Should” provides an excuse to back out of what you planned to do. You are either committed to completing the activity or not interested. Either position is acceptable. If you commit to an action, you must do it, not should. Commitment is an excellent attribute to have. Maintains focus.
That’s all for now.
