I originally wrote this blog post back in May 2020. Something went a little wonky on my blog page and I lost it, so I thought I would write it up again. It is such a wonderful memory for me, especially since the passing of my dog, Jaz, less than a year after we had this experience.
This is what I shared...
Yesterday I took my dog, Jaz, for a walk and it was cold and windy. I was hunched forward, with my shoulders up and my head down. I caught the thought, "ugh, I can't believe it's May and it's so cold!". I recognized that I was rushing to get back to the comfort of home.
Life was happening all around me and yet I had caught myself living completely in my head.
The story my mind was telling me - that cold equals bad, that it was unfair because it was Spring, that if I just hurried up the future moment would somehow be better - was creating my experience in the moment and dictating how I felt.
After pausing to soak in my surrounding, I broke into a run; I felt like I was flying. And suddenly, the same wind that my mind had been cursing and wishing away just a few moments before, felt invigorating!
In that moment, I felt fully alive!
