Thoughtful Walking

1 Apr


Do you see the potential danger to someone who walks this path?

Rocks.  Big ones.  Loose ones just waiting for the preoccupied hiker.
All shapes and forms of rock line what could be, and should be,
a lovely morning walk.

Today it is possible that a pesky rock or two might be in your pathway.
I know I’ll encounter a few.
Here’s what I learned yesterday on this very path:
a. Pay attention to your feet; walk thoughtfully
b. Glance up once in awhile and get a sense of what’s coming:
that big pile of rocks ahead
c. If you want to see the beauty around you, stop
and refocus from feet to flowers.

Walking without paying attention to the pathway is dangerous.
Walking with your head down, without pausing to refresh,
means you might miss something breathtaking.

Walk thoughtfully today.
Take obstacles seriously.
Stop a few times and see what’s around you.
Be grateful for the path, the rocks, the flowers.
Press on.  Pause.
Say “Thank You”

    Does that mean you tripped? Oh my! Hope your back continues to feel better since the shot.
