This weekend I realized for the first time how lonely taking care of yourself can be. I had "Plan A" and "Plan B" with others for hiking as well as back-up plans. But for multiple reasons all the plans fell through and I was on my own, again.
The snow was a very visual reminder that I was alone. The person before me was alone also. I would have plenty of choices for company if I wanted to go shopping or sit and watch a movie. But I know I must exercise for my own physical and mental well being.
On the other hand, I have met a lot people through my exercise pursuits. I have developed some friendships with people I would have never met otherwise. I am very happy about that.
I guess the other footprints and ski tracks are really just friends that I haven't met yet.
Get out there and find your friends!
It really works! I was out today and I met a new friend! We talked for quite a while, exchanged info and we are planning on snow shoeing together next weekend! As I said "Get out there and find your friends!"
