A scenic byway is a specially designated road that travels through an area of natural or cultural beauty. You can drive on through your life as fast as you can, more focused on the destination than the journey. Or you can choose to be present and revel in the journey that is life. I choose the latter. Eyes wide open and marveling at the beauty that is everywhere all the time - this is My Scenic Byway.

I've come to realize that if I don't exercise, I go a little crazy. I am not exaggerating. I become stressed, easily agitated, moody, emotional. The world looks bleaker and less possible to manage. Dumb little things take on greater power than they should. I don't feel happy. But, if I can just make myself get outside and walk, walk, walk...then all of that washes away. My mood instantly changes. My spirits lift, the stress eases, the world looks brighter, manageable. Those little things roll off my shoulders and don't hang around. To go for a walk is a beautiful thing.
