Usually when I get home from work it’s already dark. So my nightly walk is usually one fraught with the dangers of tripping over cracks in the pavement & knife wielding murderers jumping out of the bushes to attack me. Ok slight exaggeration on that last one but my mind does have a tendency to think the worst when it’s dark & I’m out walking by myself.
Anyway tonight I got home from work early, it was still light so I decided to walk a different route, one that I don’t usually go because its isolated & always really dark. And I’m so glad I did because after a day stuck in a fluorescent lit office I stumbled across this:
And it may not seem like much, I mean it’s just some trees & a water feature, but to me it was so much more than that. Because if I wasn’t putting in the effort to lose weight & get fitter , I wouldn’t have been out walking & therefore I would never have seen it.
And I guess what it comes down to is that I don’t want to spend the rest of my life missing out on the little things like this because I’m too busy sitting in front of the tv stuffing my face with junk food.
