MY SMARTEST DECISION--EVER--WAS--TO "TAKE TO THE STREETS."

I well-remember the day I made my decision to  walk out the door---down the front walk---and keep moving forward---to the street. That day,  I was twenty-seven years old and "falling apart"--both physically and emotionally.  No one could "fix-me"...but me...and---after lots and lots of praying---the little voice inside me---directed me to start walking.  No question about it--walking changed my life.

Within weeks, I'd throw all my prescriptions for mood-elevators, tranquilizers, anti-depressants, etc. in the trash.  And soon--- I felt hopeful as--morning after morning--I enjoyed my faster steps, my improved attitude, and my sudden boost in confidence. Soon I was running and---I could feel myself growing stronger--and smarter.

Weeks turned into months---then years--and even today, every day----- I still "hit the streets."

So, my message to all of you is: You can continue to take medicine, complain, feel sorry for yourself or--you can put on your walking shoes, open the door, and start walking. Before you know it---you'll be walking longer and farther and---you'll soon forget everything but how proud you are to be "out and about."

FACE FACTS.  Our bodies are built to move. And, every day, our eyes are meant to see and appreciate the beauty around us. Walking is free yet it offers priceless benefits. Everything about YOU will start improving---once you take your first steps.  But, to see a difference, you must stay committed.

 I know-- from experience-- your feet can take you to exciting and wonderful places....when you just let them walk---and you simply--- follow!
