I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately and I think it stems from not spending enough time outside. I’ve been neglecting my workouts or choosing to workout at the gym instead of outside. I find joy in being outside. I love being in God’s creation and I’m almost always in a better mood after taking a walk or run. Even a drive through the country lifts my spirits. I put an end to that lack of outdoor activity yesterday. The above pictures is a view of the field next door before I left for work. Beautiful, right? I love walking to my car and seeing that pretty long grass every morning. It’s great.
After work I met up with a friend and ran through Percy Warner. We stayed on the road and hit some awesomely steep hills, but it really helped me re-energize and renew focus on health and fitness. So thankful for accountability of a friend to keep me motivated. Sometimes I find it hard to stay committed on my own. I need someone there beside me to keep me going and push me to work harder…or even to workout at all.
I think part of this funk is also related to my spiritual life. I haven’t been very committed to reading the Word or to prayer. Prayer and the Bible are essential to a good relationship with Christ, and I haven’t been as devoted to that relationship as I would like to be. I need to find a good independent study to do. I want to dive deeper into the Bible. Any suggestions?
