Tonight I got off my duff and went for a walk. It's been a while since I've actually done any kind of physical activity and the scale has shown me that my body is not happy.
While I was walking, this song kept popping in my head. It's weirdly appropriate. I've begun reading a book about how we close ourselves off when we've been hurt. It is a bit mind-blowing and oddly apropos for this period of my life. One way that I do it is that I avoid difficult conversations when I worry how people will respond.
Tonight I put on my big girl panties and made the call. The person was not available to talk, but I've still opened the door for the conversation.
