Just A Walk In The Park (Monday Sept 24, 2018)
Today I decided to take a little walk in the park, my morning didn’t quite go the best, but I won’t talk about that, let’s just skip to what my walk in the park was like. So I got to the park and sat on one of the benches that was there, I was expecting to write in my thought journal while I was there, but I didn’t really know what to write about so after being there and sitting on the bench for a bit, I decide to get up and wander around, I went and walked to where that river trail is, the one i’m always telling you guys about, I didn’t go down the trail though, I still have to do that, but I did look at the river for a bit, after doing that I then walked along the park trail, I think there were some kids playing by the little playground before I got there because as I was walking down the park trail, I stopped at some really neat chalk art drawings, I even took a photo of them, I thought it was really cute.
They even had a hopscotch game, now I haven’t played hopscotch in forever and so I thought i’d relive a little bit of my childhood and play it again, it was quite nice to go back relive that moment of my childhood. They also drew some chalk bubbles which was nice, there was a dog face as well, a few flowers and some other little drawings too, I took some pictures of them, only of certain ones though. I would’ve taken a picture of all of them individually, but I forgot to put the battery back into my camera, I had it charging the other night and forgot to put it back once it was fully charged, and so I had to use my phone aaaand well, I don’t have a lot of space on my phone so I was only able to take a few pictures, I had to delete some photos off my phone before I took anymore pictures, that’s how much space I have on my phone haha.
I also ran into a baby squirrel, it was the cutest little thing I tell you, never saw a baby squirrel before at least not that I remember, but I saw the baby squirrel on the pathway that I was walking and at first I thought it was hurt, because it wasn’t really moving it was just standing in one spot, but the closer I got to it, I saw that it was fine. I’m not sure why it was in the middle of the pathway, but I stopped in front of it and looked at it, it started moving a little slowly, anytime I tried to get closer to it, it would get a little startled so I left it alone, I ended up seeing it twice, once when I walked past it and when I was coming back into the park. The second time it jumped at me, well not like at me, at me if that makes sense, but a little which startled me a bit and I think me getting startled, may have startled it a bit as well, but the squirrel was okay which was my concern.
It was so cute though, I didn’t take a photo of it which I wish that I had, as you know though I didn’t have my camera well I had my camera, but the battery wasn’t in it and I didn’t have enough space on my phone, plus I wasn’t even thinking about taking a photo I just wanted to make sure it was okay. After coming across the baby squirrel I then walked down towards this waterfall that was nearby and was just admiring it as I walked, I ended up going down the path to where it was, to give it a closer look. I also sat with it for a good while……you know being out in the park, walking with nature and just being with yourself as well is actually quite nice, i’ve found that i’m really enjoying just being with myself lately.
I’ll be honest with you guys, I use to not like going places by myself, because I always thought it was a little weird to just be somewhere with just yourself and I would always think what if I have something I want to talk about, who am I gonna tell!? but I find that sometimes you don’t always need to be with someone, that it’s okay to just take yourself out to enjoy the day even if you’re just heading to the park or going for a walk, yeah sure it may feel completely weird and uncomfortable at first when you try it, but the more you do it, the less weird it’ll become, after that it’ll just become a natural thing. Ever since I first took that walk to the park and continued going after that, i’ve found myself really enjoying my own company, even though I always head to the park to think, but even if I have a lot of stuff on my mind, I still do my best to try and enjoy something. Being there yesterday and looking at the waterfall, taking everything in, while listening to music……..it was very nice and calming, plus I felt happier as well and it’s been a while since i’ve felt that.
So that was my journal entry, well most of it, I did add different stuff to it while writing, but yeah I just wanted to share my day with you guys, I hope you enjoyed it, anyway I hope that you all have a lovely day/night and or evening.
All The Love ❤ ❤
