555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 80.
Time Awake: 8:03 a.m.
I walked in the misty rain this morning. I didn’t melt! More importantly, I was walking.
The pain in my feet is gone. The swelling is minimized. The walking motion is normal once again. This is all because I took advice my Mom regularly gives to heart: “Be kind to yourself.”
So yesterday, I was kind to myself. I went from periods of sitting to doing standing exercises, indulging in neither for too long. I spent time with the right people who elevate me and with whom I can share contentment. I ate food that was not only great for the stomach, but the soul.
In giving myself extra care, my walking was good by the evening. Upon waking this morning, I felt wonderful. And I confirmed that by walking.
“Be kind to yourself” remains a Life Truism. Thanks, Mom.
