Day 9 of a Month of Gratitude

Inspiration for those who have cancer…

It was way too cold and very windy for outdoor running today. It was sunny which helped a lot. I didn’t want to go running but I find that I always feel better when I push myself to do something that I don’t want to do, especially these days. I was really sad as yet another pathway was closed that was open only two days ago. So after taking a different route and while I was just taking some pictures some guy came up to me and said that the area was closed. I didn’t enter a closed off area so I didn’t know what he was talking about, and after I left I was really sick and tired of all this loss of freedom. It’s getting getting ridiculous. I guess the city of Chicago doesn’t want people to be outside, but it feels like we can’t even take a breath of fresh air. I feel so claustrophobic right now as I write this.

Today was a challenging day to feel grateful for some reason. I even meditated twice. But then a guy I used to know popped up in my head while I was still meditating, strangely. He died about three years ago at the age of 38, and it was sudden. He left behind a wife who wasn’t even 30 years old, only being married one year. I flew to his funeral in Dallas, and I was so moved at how many people were there and how exquisite the service was. It was like a Kennedy died. I have no idea why he came to my mind during my meditation. Maybe it’s because this coronavirus is like a death? Anyway, I am grateful to be alive…
