That's Fit (AOL Health) - Why I Find Gratitude In Walking
By Jenny Block | That's Fit (AOL Health) :: June, 2011
"I've been thinking a lot about walking, lately. Maybe it's because I just earned my Blue Belt in Nia. About nine months ago, I walked into a place called Move Studio in Dallas, Texas. I had no idea what I was in for. Before every class we step into our practice for the day and after every class we step out into our day. I never really gave much thought to walking before that. I just did it. I just do it. But those daily steps, barefoot, on a cool, wooden floor before and after dancing Nia, have caused me to think more about putting one foot in front of the other."
"I am mindful now of those steps that I can, I get, I opt, I choose to take. I don't complain about a parking space in the back of the lot or a forgotten pair of sunglasses that I must retrace my steps to gather. I think instead about how lucky I am to do something so simple and that so many of us take for granted."
