i had an unexpected illness that left me feeling unable to move. i never understood the amount of gratitude i could have for something like walking before that seemingly normal part of my life was unreachable.
with gratitude is how i want to live.
i have added a mantra to my yoga and meditative practices: i am a part of the whole and a manifestation of the universe that reflects upon itself.
"There was no God in his heart, he knew; his ideas were still in riot; there was ever the pain of memory; the regret for his lost youth - yet the waters of disillusion had left a deposit on his soul, responsibility and a love of life, the faint stirring of old ambitions and unrealized dreams." - F.Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise, 1920!
