Sometimes I Like To Walk

Sometimes I like to walk. 

Put on a playlist, bundle up warm and just walk.

I don’t know where I’m going or what I’m doing it all for, but I walk. And I think.

I’ve been told many a time that I’m an over thinker. I over analyse everything, hone in and unwrap every detail. I’ve tried to stop this, to think shallower, to let things go. But it’s just not the way my brain is wired. I can lose myself for hours in car journeys simply looking out the window as the trees and scenery fly by. Just thinking. Dreaming. Processing.

Sometimes the only way to clear those mental tabs and gain any peace at all, is to allow my mind to run while I walk.

Being a deep thinker is often intimidating for people. They worry you’re taking everything they say and dissecting it into a million pieces, judging and creating problems. When in reality you’re just thinking things through, seeing things from both sides, taking other peoples feelings, thoughts and situations into account.

Being a deep thinker makes me incredibly thoughtful when it comes to those special few I allow into my world. It makes me more understanding, more patient and forgiving. Yes it may mean I have a lot to say, more questions than usual and problems often have to be talked through for longer or on more than one occasion. But it’s not a bad thing.

Sometimes I like to walk. 



Give it a try, you never know what your mind might discover.
