Day 77: The Way Life Should Be

I am a big believer in getting rid of the word “should” in my vocabulary, but in this instance I think that it best describes what I am talking about.

Today I went running in Washington Park.  I accidentally forgot my headphones at home, which ended up being a blessing in disguise.  I ran five peaceful miles and listened to every deep rhythmic breath that I took.

The park was different today, not just because I was missing Beyonce blasting in my ears, there was something else.  It was the calm after a joyous holiday.  The coming together of families and an abundance of love could be felt in the warm air.  There were fathers playing catch with their sons, grandmothers teaching grandchildren how to ride bikes, dogs chasing after geese, large families taking a stroll and laughing, couples holding hands with sparkling eyes and runners giving that “runner nod” with a flash of a smile.

It was peaceful.  Life is beautiful.  Is it just me or is this the way that life should be everyday?
