While I was unloading my groceries into my car yesterday, I noticed the person parked next to me was doing the same thing. We finished up simulataneously and began wheeling our carts over to the return stall several parking spaces from us. There we were strolling along side-by-side.
I looked over and said, "Race ya!"
Without delay we began running. We must have been a sight with me sporting a long maxi skirt and this man's teeth clenching down on a pipe.
As we walked back to our cars, this stranger was laughing one of those deep belly laughs and said, "I haven't had this much fun grocery shopping in I don't know how long."
I smiled and drove off. I'm still smiling as I think back on this random act of playfulness with a stranger.
It felt great to run like a kid and to share a laugh.
If you've been following my blog this week, you know I started detoxing and cleaning my diet three weeks ago. What started out as a desire to lose some weight and get healthy has become so much more. I feel so good, so full of energy. I feel more like my fun, playful, spontaneous self.
I can't wait to see where today's adventures take me!
