Walking

Jan 20, 2022

Aim for the sky and you'll reach the ceiling. Aim for the ceiling and you'll stay on the floor.   Bill Shankly

I heard this quote today as I was walking, and I pondered it. Basically, what I chose to reflect upon was how reaching for the sky and doing our best is a wonderful way to live, but to also be humble in the process.  If I achieve all I want to achieve in my lifetime, great, but it's also how I present myself to the world and myself. Am I kind, compassionate, and do I care about others? Am I perfect with this, heck no. I attempt to keep my side of the street clean and help others when I can.  What does this quote mean to you?

I was also listening to an audible book, "Walking to Listen" by Andrew Forsthoefel. I am fascinated by this young man's determination to walk across the United States and listen to people's stories.  

I just started this book, so what I do know is that he began his journey in PA. and his goal was Ca. I don't know yet that he made it all the way, but the subtitle of "4,000 miles across America, one story at a time", infers that he did.

So, as I walk, I will listen to this young man's stories of all the interesting people he meets. 

What are you walking and listening to?
