Mental attitude and physical wellbeing are blood relatives.
Jogged yesterday morning. Tripped and fell hard on the sidewalk. Brush burn on hip, hurt left shoulder, ripped holes in both gloves (it was 45 degrees in Orlando), and smashed the new iPhone 5s.
Jason, the Terminix driver, shouted as I lie on the ground, ‘Are you okay?”
It took a few minutes, but the attitude went from:
- let’s sue for damages and neglect to…
- thank goodness this wasn’t a car accident and no ambulance/hospital is needed
When we are balanced, we detach from old, societal habits quickly.
The peace and joy we gain is beyond the ability to articulate.
