you go somewhere in nature,
or you do some walking meditation."

You get to choose which path you take in life, and how you travel that path.
If you choose to see it all as a mud-covered, rocky hill... it will be so.

We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." -Carlos Castaneda via blog-beau-monde
"The trick is in what one emphasizes.
We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong.
The amount of work is the same."
~Carlos Castaneda, from Journey to Ixtlan

Conversely, if you choose to see your journey as one of constant adventure,
full of delights to enjoy and challenges to be overcome, with an
abundance of beauty and wonder along the way,
then that that will be your reality.

Are you willing to do the work to make it happen?
Because it does take some effort, strength of mind and a bit of time.
But isn't that worth your happiness and peace of heart and mind?

I beleive you'll find it absolutely is worth it.
And as Casteneda quite astutely said, the amount of work is the same.
// Choose wisely. //
