Perk # 19: Cancer Helped Me To Stop And Smell The Roses

I just returned from a walk with my dog, Patches.  It is a beautiful fall day, the sky is cloudless, and there is just enough chill in the air to put a spring in your step.  Before cancer, I probably would not have taken the opportunity to go outside and enjoy this perfect day.  Even if I was not at work, I would be looking around the house at the mounds of laundry, mutuant dust bunnies, and stacks of unopened mail all vying for my attention.  But today I said, “The housework will always be here, but this beautiful day won’t.  I’m going for a walk!”….and I am glad I did.

Tip:  Even if you do not feel well enough to take a walk, get outside and enjoy the fresh air.  There is something about being outdoors that revs the spirit and makes you happy just to be alive.
