As I travel around the country and further afield, walking from destination to destination, attraction to attraction, one amazing meal to the next, I look around and see a lot of people who aren't able to use their legs in the same way as me.
Some have mobility issues causing them to use crutches, or a cane, or a walker, or a wheelchair—whether temporarily or permanently. Others are slowed by age.
It reminds me to stay in gratitude that I am able to walk, climb stairs, step up and down curbs, or cross over a threshold into a room or the shower.
To walk to the top of a beautiful tower, to enjoy a sunset on an uneven precipice, to climb into a boat to sail on the ocean - all things most people can do without giving it much thought.
From this day forward I'm going to do my best to mindful—and grateful—of this simple yet very important and meaningful ability I have as I traverse the globe over the days, weeks, months, and years to come.
