I woke up this morning to grey skies. The wind had been howling all night, and everything was wet. The wind was still blowing though the rain had stopped. My first thought was "Uh, a grey day!" followed by "I think I'll skip my walk this morning".
Thankfully, I remembered my promise to myself to take a walk each morning regardless of what the weather looked like. My experience is that though the weather "looks" icky, oftentimes, once I'm out walking, the beauty of Nature and the peace and pleasure of walking override the preconceived notions I have about grey skies and rain.
