Anne Klein (another Anne Klein – not so much into shoes) in Across the Expanse writes about understanding and valuing, “Our intrinsic nature and our reactive patterns.” Both have value but only the latter can be altered. Are you satisfied with daily patterns of behavior? Do you understand and accept your intrinsic nature?
Reactive patterns are formed through repetitive acts. I walk to receive stress every day, this has become a reactive pattern. I feel my stomach tense, my jaw tighten and I head for the closet to pull on my walking shoes.
When I am able to walk with someone I trust…….and can speak without filter……the experience is enhanced and meets a need to destress and to connect. #WHW #friendship#wellness#health#psychology
