Here, in the UK, we are seeing the first signs of Autumn, as the leaves turn their beautiful shades of russet and gold. I was so inspired by the clear blue sky and the promise of some October sunshine this morning that I decided to take myself outside into the park before I started my day’s activities.
As I walked, I felt an enormous appreciation that I CAN just simply decide that I will take a walk before I start work each day. I’m not tied to getting on a train or in a car in the hustle and bustle of rush hour, and, to having to be at a certain place, at a certain time, to do my work.
That freedom and flexibility comes, in part, out of an agreement I have with my husband, about the way we live our lives. Our agreement is that he goes to work every day in his business, and that I do my work at a time and place I choose. That means, if I choose, I can go for a walk in the morning.
