I decided to walk barefoot on the golf course last night to ground myself and clear my head. For the first 10 minutes, many thoughts swirled around my head. I had many thoughts about a recent project I was working on for hours and I kept thinking about what I needed to get done. So much to do in so little time. It's my day off. I'm supposed to be relaxing a little bit, right?
A remarkable thing happened. Within minutes, I slowed down my pace, my heart and my breathing and took in the nature around me. I felt an inner peace and serenity for the next 20 minutes. So great. If only I could take that inner peace everywhere I go. I believe it's possible, but I'm not there yet. I'll keep striving.
