Scotch, chocolate, naps... these are a few of my favorite things.... (be grateful you couldn't hear me sing that)
Many of my ancestors and many of my friends from my generation have already passed away. A good friend of mine is in a wheelchair and can't walk. Another friend has such pain in his knees that he can't walk up and down stairs. So I walk for them. When I breathe in, I say to myself, "It's wonderful that I am still able to walk like this." With that awareness, I can enjoy every step. I say, "I am alive!" Mindfulness reminds me to notice and enjoy that my body is alive and strong enough for me to walk.
