Walking with your head held high

15 03 2014

When I was growing up, I was always told to “watch where you’re going!”. So I have always tended to walk looking down, about a metre or so in front of me, incase of dog muck, etc on the ground.

And this can sometimes be misconstrued as a self confidence thing.

However, today I found a reason to look up!

Because of the beautiful sunshine I decided that today I would walk to the supermarket rather than drive, and just buy what I could carry. I put my sunglasses on and off I went.

The walk there was wonderful, so warm that I didn’t even have a jumper, and just enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of a spring day. I did a lap of the supermarket, got 2 bagfuls of stuff, and started to head home.

It was even warmer this time (this is a good thing, I am not complaining!), and so my nose started to glow a little. I would say sweat, but there was a book I read as a child that had the following line in it: “Horses sweat, men perspire, ladies glow.” – so I like to use “glow” when I can!

Anyway, my sunglasses kept slipping down my nose, and with 2 hands occupied with shopping bags, I kept having to stop to push my glasses back up, and then carry on. It turned out the only way to stop this happening was to look straight ahead or even up! This doesn’t come naturally to me, but it was my only option!

It’s time to look up!

Which on a pretty unrelated note, got this wonderful song stuck in my head – enjoy 🙂

(Am I the only one who for years thought this song was singing “it’s time to let go”?!)
