The 19th thing I learned again in 2023 -- Go outside if you can!

End of day light

I started trying to resume my aim for 10,000 steps a day about a 
week ago.  I was getting between 6,000 and 8,500 most days, but
I wanted the ten.  And I've succeeded for a week! This most
definitely requires going outside unless you're lucky enough to
live near a very large shopping plaza.  

So I just got home from a very long walk, and it's cold.
Mighty cold -1 Celsius, which is 30.2 Fahrenheit. It is the
end of the day, and the rewards for walking were the amazing
sights along the way.  The beauty of tree branches against the
glorious changing light. The bright gold shining on buildings
and beaming on windows reflecting the sun.  Amazing. 

I mailed 2 letters.  Yes! And if we go out to get groceries, or maybe
just to walk, I will get the 10,000. And then my friends after dinner
and some TV with my sweet man -- I will sleep like a baby.

Try it.  I felt so clear headed from that cold walk that I
organized my studio table -- yes!

Have a loving your life day.
