Loneliness

I’ve been thinking about writing a post on loneliness for some time, but I just can’t find the words. Perhaps because I’m surrounded by so many people that it seems weird to confess that I’m lonely. And it’s really starting to bother me as this really isn’t how I imaged my life would be; and perhaps not how others perceive my life to be.

Walking

I walk a lot – either regular or Nordic walking. It is my primary way of toning up the body and keeping weight under control. Ideally, I’d walk every day, first thing in the morning since I enjoy the great outdoors and feel that it sets up the day nicely. I usually feel invigorated and ready to take on any challenge before me. However, most morning, I find myself hitting the snooze button because really – who wants to get up at 5am? Definitely not me! That said, today was different. I was up and out quite quickly and walked […]
