Leading Wherever I Choose

Bonnie Smith Whitehouse’s journal for mindful walking takes its title from Walt Whitman’s poem, Song of the Open Road, which begins:

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road.

Healthy, free, the world before me.

The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose. 

There are so many times we carry a heavy heart, the thought of being light hearted sings to me as I hope it does to you. I must remind myself to find things in my day, my week, my month that lighten my heart. I can think of a few off the top of my head, and I need to put them first on my plate, not “when I get around to them.”

In today’s meditation consider what lightens your heart, and move it to the top of your priority list.
