Walking by Bolin Creek in Chapel Hill has been a life saver for me.
With life that is definitely non linear and constantly changing, I need somewhere to go to hear my own thoughts and just listen.
Walking the creek for me has been meditative. Here are some observations from my morning walk:
- Warm sun
- Croaking frogs
- Sounds of yard work beginning in the distance
- Flowing creek
- Runners with dogs
- Screeching hawk
- The start of a tee pee by some kids
All of these guided my thoughts. Thoughts that are hard to discern during the hustle of life.
At any stage of your life and career, carve out that place where it is just you. Let the thoughts flow, but quash any that are negative. It is part of what Covey called "sharpening the saw".
How do you recharge, "sharpen the saw"?
Let me know, it is far more interesting to me.
