Last Time?

When was the last time you went for a walk? Not because you needed to get out of your house or job, but because you wanted to hear your thoughts.

When was the last time you climbed a hill? Not because there was something you wanted at the top, but because the hill needed to be climbed, in your honest opinion.

When was the last time you helped someone? Not for reward, but because you wanted to.

When was the last time you played with a child? Not with a video game or toy, but with the tools between your ears.

When was the last time you swam in the sea? Not at a doctors’ recommendation, but because you felt connected to something much larger than yourself.

When was the last time you chose humanity over technology? Not because you were guilted into it, but because you missed that person.

When was the last time you rolled around in a field? Not because your clothes were on fire, but because you wanted to make yourself laugh as fast as possible.

When was the last time you chose to listen to nothing? Not because your cell reception was out, but because silence sounded so good right then.

I just came back from a walk.

Felt good.
