Yes my friends, we all have them and it’s amazing!
I was appreciating today how wonderful my fearless feet really are as they have taken me everywhere I ever wanted to go & anywhere I’ve ever wanted to be. It’s rare to be grateful for something we’ve always had and I’ve undoubtedly taken my feet for granted my entire life. They’ve always just been there. I haven’t known it any other way.
The follow on effect of my mind wandered back through the years trying to remember a moment my feet had let me down. Unbelievably, I came up with nothing. Yep, nothing. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Not a thing. Sure, I’ve had a twisted ankle or two in my time, but not once have my feet given up. It’s incredible!
My feet are such a powerful extension of my body. I’ve so easily walked, ran, skipped and ridden to an endless amount of interesting and fascinating places. I haven’t even thought to stop and thank or acknowledge them for leading me safely to the places I’ve wanted to see. This has to change because I’m fairly certain I’d be lost without them. I want to be thankful, grateful and appreciative right now. And so I am.
Am I a bad friend?
It’s true too when I say that I haven’t even given them any undivided love and/or attention. Surely, it’s not that difficult to have a foot massage once in a while? Maybe even soak them in warm bath or have a pedicure. I feel like a bad friend and yet they are still here, fully functional, always doing their best. That in itself deserves more than just a mention.
Today, and every day forward, I would like to honour my fearless feet for being with me every step of the way.
