Gratitude makes the journey better and so does kindness

Socks For The Prodigal Blogger

I’m back. It’s been a while. Not that I did not have topics to write about. But a lot of life happened in the meantime. I took big bites, rarely had time or knew how to chew, so I mostly gulped. A lesson in itself. If I try to categorize everything into good and bad, I’d have to sit down and think which is which but that’d wrong from my point of view, you see. I believe there’s something to learn from everything so I am.

I’ve learned that boundaries are something each person needs in order to be complete. It goes hand in hand with speaking one’s truth. More about this in a future post. I’ve learned that adding smiles to every day life will make life smile back in unexpected ways. A matter of trust I’d say. I’ve learned that there are people in my life that are worth all those smiles and then some.

I am one week away from bidding farewell to my leg companion. It’s been a while, five weeks. I bought new socks to dress up for the occasion. Literally. I walk cast-free and without a limp, most times anyway, and I cherish all my bones with rediscovered awareness and gratitude. It’s sunny outside and it smells of spring, it does. Have you noticed that early mornings are brighter? If my words were groundhogs this post is where it should be. Time-wise I mean.


Unlimping As A Sign Of Mindfulness


Cast Away


  1. Hurray for healing, for smiles, for boundaries and for speaking one’s truth!

    • Thank you, Graciela and yes, celebration of such things makes the journey worthwhile. I’d say these are on the list of important ones!
