Sitting at Barnes and noble reading a magnolia magazine about purpose. I wish I had my book with me. A journal or something. This is me practicing being slow and intentional.

This morning I decided to go on a peaceful sunrise walk along the river near my house. I am so glad I did as opposed to going to the gym and working out rigorously indoors. Life is about balance you know? I am teaching myself that I don’t have to run myself into the ground…
