Note to self:

Dear Mikalina, 
It could be helpful to remember that the first few minutes of walking anywhere, your legs are going to feel stiff. Your calves might ache. You might feel awkward. This is ok. This is normal. Especially if you’ve been sitting or driving recently. It happens to everyone. It’s not because you are fat. There is nothing to be ashamed of. 

Sit down for a minute if you want to. Rest your hip if it’s aching. Stretch your calves and twirl your ankles. And if you want to, you can get back up again and keep walking.  Miraculously your legs will probably feel better. Walking might feel like something your body is meant to do. And wants to do. It’s called warming up. It’s not your fault. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Walk on, my dear. It’s going to be ok.
