On Walking (and Seeing)

As I was walking from the back of the building to my desk, it dawned on me how lucky I am that I can. Just thought I'd take a second to acknowledge that to the universe. (Oh, and universe, I'm also pretty stoked about the whole sight thing too. It's much appreciated, really.)

I know what you mean. I find myself bitching and moaning on days when I plan on going for a run... cuz really, I'm just lazy and don't want to do it. But I do. And then I see someone unable to run on their own and I feel like an ass for complaining so much. Big 'ol reality check.

I was seriously just thinking about how incredible our ability to see is last night while I watched that gorgeous sunset. Sunsets are taken for granted so much. I think they're one of the most beautiful gifts being alive (and seeing) we have. It was a pretty cool evening...right after seeing that incredible sunset I saw my friend's two day old baby girl. It's so weird how life works. Walking, seeing and making new people - amazing.

valyna: While we're at it, let me go ahead and thank the universe that my kids have these benefits (and more) as well. That's way more important.

spooge: Very good point. Ask Josh Williams. The poor saint hasn't broken wind since the mid-'70s. Can I get a witness, Josh?

hattica: Agreed, all amazing.

Amen.
