Last week I told you about how my walking had all but stopped due to sore legs and hot weather and any other reason I could muster. I was a little down on myself, actually. I knew that my walking was good for me. I knew that there really was no reason to quit. I knew that I was making excuses and justifying my actions. I knew ALL of this, and yet, for about 2 weeks, I didn’t walk regularly.
Last Friday, I started walking again. It wasn’t easy to drag myself out of bed, but I knew it was what I had to do.
Yesterday, during my walk, my MP3 player died. This was truly a tragedy, because I can’t keep up the swift pace without my music. When I got back to the house, I plugged the MP3 player in to charge, and it wouldn’t do anything. No lights came on. There was no indication that my little MP3 was still alive!
All day, I worried about having to buy a new player. Money is tight, so I was not looking forward to spending extra dollars on a new player. Still, I worried about it until I got home.
I decided that trying to “fix” the player couldn’t hurt it if it was truly a goner, so when I got home, I took it off the charger and banged it on the desk a few times. (I don’t recommend trying this with your MP3 or IPod.)
Then I pressed the power button.
It worked! I “fixed” my little player, and all was well in my world again.
And the walking continues…
