a walk down the alley

🌼 ☀9:18 AM

this morning i walk the back alleys of my small country town. it was said they run through the city parallel to the houses and businesses. a straight line connecting street to street. the perspective,well, awesome. maybe it’s jus me, but i believe during the day, the alleys are there to encourage walking. for one, you can get lost. if you walk forward, you’ll notice the alleys break as would any intersection. so, jus turn around and go the opposite way 😬😏

don’t get me wrong. once they connect to the main road the pathway cuts off. but that’s a mile out before you make the decision to cross or jus go to the next alley. i prefer the latter for a safer walk. if you’re like me and needs to write everything awe inspiring before it fades then you’re probably pecking away at your device while occasionally lookin to see if there are anyone in front or behind you.

the amazing part about this walk was how different and unique each pathway are. small daycare playground, empty of occupants reflect the vibrant colors of play. chatter and laughter from the homes. for the most part it’s quite, which makes seeing and hearing such memorable.

as i am walking with my ear buds in, softly playing Christian music in the background, i occasionally find these unusal but pretty damn amazing and inspiring mementos, which is filtered to replicate the lens of my sunglasses.

jus going out and doing what i want knowing my kids are safe made me realize that anything is possible with purpose. and i believe as God’s children, we’re capable of juggling multiple purposes with the right mindset.

👣 I’ve walked a total of 5,555 steps so far today. my goal is 7,000.

  1. This was so perfect to read right before bed. I love the spin you’ve put on this and the artistic way you did the pictures. I never would have thought to take an alley. There is truly beauty everywhere. 💕
