If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. Eleanor Roosevelt

It’s day 15 of the Starting with a Quote Project

And what are you learning?

You want details or the big picture?

Either.

This morning on my walk, I realize this project’s addressing my “thinking too hard” behavior.

Tell me more.

Well, I have all these crazy spinning thoughts in my head.

Yeah?

And I’m watching this morning routine (morning pages, walk, then blog) give my spinning thoughts some structure, focus and direction, which then allows room for new ideas. It’s like what Cathy was showing me a few weeks ago when we were cleaning and organizing her classroom.

Cool.

Yeah.  Now I’m going to the nature park north of town. Today’s a bit cooler (high 80’s) and a nature walk was an early morning idea. I’ll take a water bottle, trail mix, my notebook, bug spray…and some room for new thoughts:)
