Now, more than ever, it is important to stay positive, active and connected. Today I give a big shout out to some folks who are leading the way and doing just that.
I just love what they are doing! I won’t use names here but they will likely see this post. Chime in friends… share your inspiration if you’d like! You are certainly inspiring me…
20 rides in 2020
A friend of mine loves to go camping with her family and they do so frequently throughout the summer. She, her husband, and their young son have made a commitment to do 20 bike rides in 2020. Not only do they enjoy the rides together but they have a lot of fun planning them too. They are learning and exploring while they take good care of themselves and each other. Bravo!
Local hikes with friends
Another friend has enjoyed hiking and exploring various parks where she lives. She started posting pictures on social media. Then, she invited others to join her. They pick a place and time. They meet there and hike the area together (while social distancing). They take their cameras too and now I and others can see more pictures from their adventures. I feel like I am with them. Thanks friends and cheers to staying connected in a healthy way!
Another friend of mine takes a walk early every morning. She and her husband wander around and take pictures of interesting things and beautiful landscapes. These include anything from beautiful flowers to animal carvings out of wood. She posts these and, in turn, provides a slice of life to us all. I look forward to these photos every day. I know others do too. Thanks for sharing the beauty that is all around us!
Keep the faith everyone. These are the things that matter right now and worthy of our focus and attention. How are you staying active and connected? We need more of this so please share your stories. When you share your story, you are sharing hope. Love each other and keep inspiring us with your adventures. Onward!
