I want to run again. I want to experience my body moving, constantly moving as my legs and feet carry me to new places, lead me to discovery, and allow me to see the world in a different light. I want to be outside. Free and invigoratingly alive. I want to be aware of the world around me and my place in it. I want to look up and marvel at the largeness of the trees, the vastness of the sky. I want to look down and be amazed at the life within the soil, the ancient rocks beneath my feet. I want to be alive and young and free, knowing that my body is capable of carrying me high into the mountains and deep into jagged valleys. I want to walk. I want to walk, and walk, and walk until my mind falls still and the only thing that I am aware of is the sound of my own breathing. I want to explore.
I want to feel better now. I want to feel better now, please?
