Sometimes, I find that it is so easy to focus on the negative rather than the positive so, to keep my sanity, I regularly spend my morning walk to work thinking about what I am thankful for. There are the VERY obvious ones (like my sons and my husband... which will be covered in other posts) but there are also some things that become more obvious with reflection. One thing that I thought of today, on my walk to work, IS my walk to work! Every day, I get a just over an hour of walking in one of my most favourite cities in the world- Montreal. I get the chance to people watch, which I love to do. It is good, relaxing exercise and, in a time where time always seems rushed, I am glad to be able to incorporate it into my daily life. I get to window shop (no, Andreas, I am not going inside ;) ) and, on really good days, enjoy a good cup of coffee. It is a good way to prepare mentally for the day, or to unwind at the end of it. It is a bit of time with myself... or colleagues that take the train with me. It saves me stress in traffic, although crowds of tourists on Ste. Catherine are also pretty good at causing traffic jams ;)
Today, I am thankful for my daily walk, to and from work.... and more now because it is warm and there is NO snow on the ground ;)
Hope you enjoy day xox
Here are some pictures from this morning's walk.....
