I use my hands a lot. I do a lot of needlework, horseback riding, petting animals, writing, typing. And I never really take a chance to thank my hands for all they allow me to do. I also didn't realize how distracted I had become. My schedule is hectic for the next few months and I had no clue how badly I needed this time to breath and reconnect with myself. I still cannot believe the effects meditation has had on me. I am so much happier, more optimistic, I am allowing walls built up over many years to finally lower. Or as another post I like said I must not wrap myself in cactus thorns."
