CHRISTINA — DAY 34: Walking
Lenten Facebook Fast
Being off Facebook has allowed me to have more time to do things I’ve always enjoyed. Well, who am I kidding, the weather warming up is helping, too. Since the end of the fall, I’ve been really missing walking. Now that the weather is warming up, I’m finally able to go outside on a refreshing, hour-long walk. Sure, I still have just as much schoolwork to do, but being off Facebook has given me back about one hour extra each day that I can now spend walking.
This past weekend, I took a long walk down to the Public Gardens in Boston, from where I live in Kenmore Square, near Fenway Park.
Along the way, I saw hopeful signs of spring, and I was reminded that the winter might actually finally be over. Unexpectedly, I ran into a parade, too.
This leisurely stroll was exactly what I needed to renew my spirit.
