Stumbling Across Peace

I stumbled across peace yesterday during my FitBit challenge.

I went out for a walk.

Lately I have been walking without an agenda as to where.

And it is pretty darn cool where I end up when I let go and simply walk.

The other night, Friday night, I walked around my neighborhood.

Then I walked around an adjacent neighborhood.

And then I walked over to a very upscale mall after it was closed.

It houses such stores as: Chanel, Coach, Gucci, kate spade, Louis Vuitton, Prada , and Versace.

It even has a Ritz Carlton attached!

The stores mean nothing to me, but I have been to the Ritz and it is the bomb. It is also pretty cool that it opens right up into the mall.

Since the restaurants were still open I was able to walk the mall even though the stores were closed. Honest, I checked with the security guard.

I walked the three floors twice, and thought, wow I need to do this more often.  Especially when I am working on pulling off a coup d’état to win the FitBit challenge there at the end on a Friday night.

Yes I know it is sad. That IS how I have spent four of my last five Friday nights.  I’ve been walking to win.

Anyway, back to yesterday, I stumbled across a Zen like area that stretches up a pretty big hill. There were loads of stairs or you could take a winding path up laced with waterfalls, beautiful stone work, plants and benches along the way.

I walked up the path, I walked down the stairs. I then ran up the stairs and I walked down the path. Then I jogged home.

I very much love the area I live in, and will visually share my experience with you to rest my case.

Best morning walk I have had thus far……
