The past weekend was just remarkably sunny, so I took advantage of Mother Nature’s gift and walked from my town’s main street back to my neighborhood. It was quite a walk, and I loved it!
As I swung my hands, I went "shoo-shoo" to the bugs! I covered my ears and mouth with my hoodie, I was starting to freak-out and not enjoying the supposedly peaceful walk. But I was determined to get past the frustration and complete the planned leisure walk. And sure enough as we were walking on the bridge, I glanced by the river and I saw mother duck and her ducklings just floating on the water – peacefully!
I then grabbed my cellphone and took a picture! What a difference that made because it changed my mood from going insane to “in-zen”. My husband was laughing as he imitated the few seconds that just transpired.
Needless to say, I told him – well, our zenwalk is definitely something to blog about!
