For a long time I could be found inside the house reading or watching a movie. Seldom would I venture outside and find some kind of activity to do there. But one day I signed up for an exercise class, because laying around the house was beginning to show on me, especially around the mid-section. Next thing I know, I was getting personal training and doing it outside.
I was amazed at the difference in only a couple of weeks. The fresh air had rejuvenated my brain. I could think more clearly, and had much more energy. I felt like a completely different person. The transformation for me was just fantastic. I realized I had breathed the stale air of my house for way too many years. Those days were now over, and I was looking to do as much as possible outside.
I began to take walks from my house to town and back. I thought it might be fun and beneficial to take up golfing. So I walked to the book store and bought a the best golf instruction book I could find. Soon I was teeing off at one of the many golf courses around where I live. I had found a new life for myself, and it had been there waiting all along.
In only four to six weeks, I was transformed, not only in the way I felt, but in the way I looked. I was trimming down and firming up. Some of the ladies around my town even remarked about what a change there had been in me. Being a single man, this was another source of motivation for me. I never missed an exercise class, or a day I had scheduled for a walk. And my golf game was improving all the time.
One day attending my exercise class, I met a beautiful woman who took an interest in me. We soon became more than just casual friends, and spent a lot of our time together. We walked a lot, we exercised together, and she was a golfer as well. After one year of our getting together at class, we both were sporting our rhodium plated wedding rings, and were a very happy couple. This all happened to me for embracing the outdoors.
We now have branched out and have been qualified to teach our own classes. It pays good, and we are extremely happy with our new lives. Sometimes I think back to the days when I stayed in and was a couch potato, and thought my life was fine. I am very thankful that I took action and saw a better way. Life is good and I am living it to the fullest.
Getting outside may not sound like much when you say it, but when you experience it, then you can get the full appreciation for it. The oxygen in the fresh air alone makes a big difference in how you think and feel. I recommend getting outside to anyone who just lays around in the house feeling dull and tired and bored. If you want to turn it around, get outside, and find someone special to enjoy it with. Your life will be much higher in quality, and much more full.
