Have you ever taken a moment to just be still and honor your feet?
Seriously, this may sounds a little cheesy but the more you think about it the more it makes sense.....Have you ever looked down and said "Thank you feet, for always supporting me, always standing up for me, always being there to give me the next direction in which way to go."?
I also have to admit that this hasn't always been apart of my normal daily routine. But recently in my yoga practice, I have continuously been in such gratitude that my feet are always there for me, always present, always guiding me, and always consistently something that I can count on. Not everyone has this good fortune. Could you imagine how different your Life would be without your Feet??? So WHY is it that we don't take the time to truly honor the little things, such as our feet, in Life...When in actuality, are really THEE MOST IMPORTANT things in our Life!
Well, It's simple.
We haven't allowed ourselves to SLOW DOWN! To give ourselves the time to truly just BE. To give our minds the SILENCE and our bodies the STILLNESS. We live in such a fast paced World that we have forgotten the oddly and miraculous Complex Simplicity that Life has to offer us. To admire the beauty that is bestowed upon us each and every day. We have been truly blessed with such a beautiful vehicle of working parts that are designed for just US! Our feet are so beyond cool in structure and form, think of all the little muscles and bones in just our feet alone! (26 little magical bones in just one foot to be exact!) And all of this is given nothing but pressure of our day, constant gravitational pull, a continuous act of balancing, and dare I say but being put in smelly or pointy shoes all day long...Ugh Some appreciation for some divinely inspired gift, huh? lol Well, we can change this!
Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of awareness to realize what's truly important and it all comes down to this one word.........
