I ran my usual 5 miles the other day but this time shook it up a bit. I took the path I’ve run a hundred times before, but this time ran it in the opposite direction.
Sounds simple, but after so many familiar treks around those bends, this time a lot appeared different. Same houses, streets and trees, but seeing them from a new angle made it fresh and intriguing. Even the time seemed to go by more quickly.
Reminds me of similar life shake-ups, some planned and others handed without invitation. Like a job layoff, reorgs with different bosses, new marriage, new city, unplanned tragedies, the list goes on.
