One (of three) Little Birds

I have been trying to incorporate exercise into my daily routine while in quarantine (insert eye roll and an "easier said than done"). In all honesty though, I have always enjoyed running outside, but I definitely have a new appreciation for it right now - particularly in the morning. Breathing in the fresh air and really focusing on the sun, the trees, the river, the wildlife - has helped me to relax throughout this all. Each time that I run through this specific route, I stop to take in the rushing waters of the river and the rising sun. It’s so calming and it sets my tone for the day. Water has always been a source of zen for me, and with everything going on right now, it has been exceptionally therapeutic. The best part of this story is that for the last two weeks, this red winged blackbird has flown up and landed on the bridge right where I’m standing each time I’m there. He’s my new little buddy and brings a smile to my face as Three Little Birds starts playing in my head. I think he pops up just to let me know that - “every little thing is going to be alright.” 


I hope I can leave you with some positive lyrics flowing through your mind today... (and don't be afraid to move to the groove either :)
Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying', (this is my message to you)
Singing' don't worry 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing' don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright
