Be Active, Feel Good
August 23, 2015
Well, this has been a very busy summer for me. A trip to Ontario, hiking, biking, bowling, museum visits, our daughter's wedding and a family vacation up island, not to mention all the fun cooking and making cookies (no-bake) with grandkids has certainly caused my summer to be busy. Being active and using up energy has even generated more energy in me and I feel good. My body has responded with endorphins (feel-good chemicals) and I have felt truly happy.
Now that the dust has settled and things seem to be getting back to normal around here; I am left with quiet and solitude, well almost. My point is do I settle for that or do I continue being active and getting out. I have discovered that for me, a cancer survivor, I need to be busy. I need to be active and that makes me happy. It is the satisfaction of having done something good for me and my body. Afterwards I can bask in the satisfaction of whatever activity I have completed.
Today Chloe and I, my dog, walked for an hour this morning. Now after completing a load of wash and hanging it on the line, I am going to read a little in my hammock and then. Who knows?
