My morning walking meditation is my favorite part of the day . It makes a huge difference for me to do this every single day no matter what , no matter the weather, no matter in my state of mind . It always makes it a better day.
Today I took a different route and I actually saw 19 squirrels on this walk ! For some reason the squirrels always make me happy , and remind me to laugh at life . The most I had ever seen before today on the walk was six . Quite a difference ! I also saw three Blue Jays playing and chasing each other which is pretty entertaining to watch .
Took me a few days this week to realize why I was emotionally up-and-down , and then I remembered what the date was , lost my brother 17 years ago on the 21st . Between losing him and losing my daughter, Christmas has not been an easy thing for a while now . But when I take those kinds of walks and I see all the squirrels and the birds playing, and I remember how much I have to be grateful for , it's really hard not to smile . So I am grateful for today!!
