I give myself permission to: Walk in the Sun.

By January 14, 2015 daily permission

One of the things I love most is taking walks. They give me time to clear my head, get energized, and think up new ideas. But, taking walks is not something I always give myself permission to do, especially in the winter.

When you live in the Pacific Northwest, it’s probably 85% cloudy for 4 months straight. Combine that with the sunrise and sunset at 8am and 4pm and it’s just harder to get out.

That’s why, yesterday when I saw sun peeking out through the clouds, I knew I had to have a nice walk. I had a lot of work to do, but that walk needed to be taken. So, I convinced Koldo to come with me, took our camera, and shot this photo on the way toward the sun.

This is also a double-reference to one of my favorite songs ever: Cyndi Lauper’s, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”. There’s a line in it where she says, “I want to be the one to walk in the sun.”.

Me too, Cyndi. Me too.
