Goals Update: Taking Walks & Exporing

Hello everybody! I've completed another goal from my October Goals List! With October ending in a few days, I have decided that I will have to finish half of the goals next month. As this was my first month blogging, I'm learning a lot about the time and effort each post requires. I think I took on too big of a task to complete by creating 10 goals for the month. I want to have time to do other posts as well, not just goals updates. So with that being said, I'll finish out this month with 5 completed goals, and then complete the next 5 in November. I still really love the idea of doing a goals segment here on my blog, I think it is a great way to share experiences and to improve as well as accomplishing things I've always wanted to accomplish. 

Okay! Now that thats all cleared up lets move on to the goal! So this is something that I've been wanting to do for a while, but for some reason I never get my feet moving to go do it. I used to take walks as a kid with my dad all the time. It was something that we both extremely enjoyed. It was a great time to spend together, and it was always an adventure. & I love a good adventure. 
Walking refreshes my mind and inspires me. Not to mention its great for the body as well. I remember hearing a saying a while back that has stuck with me, something along the lines of "if you're ever having a creative block, go take a walk". I completely agree with this piece of advice. You see so many things during a walk and that can lead to some wonderful inspiration. 
I think it's also very true that you think you know your neighborhood until you go on a walk. So many times have I driven through my neighborhood and I see the same things. But with a walk you see new things and get a new perspective. 
Perspective is so important in life. I think for a person to truly grow and live fully they need to have multiple perspectives. Even if you are just getting a new perspective by taking a walk! You are still learning and seeing and experiencing new things. 

Recently the sunsets here in Maryland have been insanely beautiful, and I love nothing more than a colorful and magical sunset. The trees have also been changing for fall, so it's been a kaleidoscope of nature's colors outside this past month :)
Take a look at the photos I took, as well as a time lapse video I took, while exploring around my neighborhood below!

I hope this post inspires you to go out at take a walk, or get a new perspective of some sort. If you're in a rut, or feeling sad, or uninspired a quick fix is taking a walk. 
I want you guys to go out for a walk or go explore a new place & see how you feel after! And adventure is a foot step away, so go find it!!
Thanks for reading!

  1. Wow this looks amazing! I wish the sunsets were like that round here, but London can be a bit dull and grey! It does take longer than you think to write posts so definitely do what works for you :) x
