Live less out of habit and more out of intent.

I'm a creature of habit, so it's easy for me to do what I've always done and gone where I've always gone... but there is something special to me about doing and going where I've always gone with a little different intention.

This past weekend, while visiting the family lake house I decided to take it upon myself to do just that. Explore away from the lake front.. walk on unknown roads.. take note in my surroundings and slow down.

I've caught a bad case of poison ivy all along the backside of my thigh so this has really limited the amount of activity I am able to do comfortably.. so I've had to force myself to slow down and wait patiently while it heals. Where as I used to spend my weekend with a long run has now turned into using this down time to explore but on a slower and less intense level.. which in return, has allowed me to have a goal to create and capture some of my adventures, which has been a rewarding process.
