A Golden Day

Monday, October 24, 2011

This was one of those days I never want to forget - a beautiful day filled with blessings and achievements.

First of all, I was able to finish a 2 mile walk in 40 minutes. It was a gorgeous day to be outside - the sun was shining, the temperature was close to 60 and the fall colors are radiant. I breathed in the cool, fresh air deeply and was grateful to be alive.

The frosting on the cake, so to speak, was receiving my SparkPeople DVD in the mail. I won it on a daily bonus spin and am very excited now that it's here. Now I have even more variety for my cardio workout.

Then, as I was walking back to my apartment building, I caught sight of the late afternoon sun streaming through the golden leaves of a tree on the front lawn. The brilliant rays of light made the leaves glow with a beauty I can't even begin to describe. I just stood there in a state of wonder, drinking it all in.

Now, I will keep that picture in my heart for the times I feel discouraged and down - I will reach into my memory and retrieve that beautiful moment, that wonderful day - and I will be able to go on. emoticon

    This is the best time of the year. I enjoyed a nice long walk outside yesterday.
    The leaves are gorgeous, and it's so nice to not be too hot.
