60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday: Drop Your Shoulders – Drop Your Burdens
by Diane Wyzga | July 19, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Mason, Wisconsin!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Walking home around Holmes Harbor I stopped to look out at the still water, boats at anchor, an eagle soaring the updrafts, not a cloud in the sky. Taking in a deep breath I found that my shoulders had bunched up around my ears with all I had been carrying.
My silly human ways reminded me of a story about a team of pack animals struggling their way up a mountainside. The last pony in line was wearing just a saddle but the horse ahead of him was burdened with boxes and bags and baskets. The pony said: Hey brother, that’s a heavy load you’re carrying! The pack horse turned it’s head and asked: What load?
Like that pack horse we get used to carrying so much we don’t even realize it.
Practical Tip: Stop. Right here. Right now. Drop your shoulders. Breath deep. Smile to your shoulders. Thank them for what they’ve been carrying for you. Tell them that in the future you will take care to burden them less. Feel them smiling back at you.
