We often complicate life with all our wants and requests, but sometimes the simplest thing, is all you really need.
A coffee. A well-read break. Putting your feet up.
Well, when ALL of the above (I know, even coffee!) didn’t do the job, and my head was still heavy, my body still tired, and my mind uninspired, I thought to do the thing that most weary legs wouldn’t normally do…
Go for a walk.
And my tired-from-kinder girl, also had to agree. A walk it was.
We chatted as we headed down the path. It was a short walk around the block, and with the afternoon sun on us, we escaped to shade as we soon turned a corner.
It was so beautiful just talking to her. She was rattling on about good boys and girls getting Christmas presents, and cheeky kids NOT! She was proud, because she had gotten a Barbie Van from Ho Ho (Santa) last year.
We talked houses. She pondered if any of her kinder classmates lived right near us, and I told her, probably not. She then asked me to ask their parents where they lived. I nodded…
We also talked magpies. People who walked around, and people who often called for taxis.
We said hi to a back-door neighbour, saw our house over the fence, and discussed what a great idea it had been to take a light-hearted walk around the block…
Light-hearted, but simultaneously, uplifting. The walk, had WORKED. 🙂
