I have had my cat Misty for about seven years. Due to my health condition, I very rarely leave home. I appreciate Misty’s presence. Misty sleeps most of the time. But I still enjoy her company. The most valuable life lesson Misty has taught me is just being still is enough. I am learning to be happy just being . I am less concerned about making to do lists or finishing projects.
I am learning not only to accept my mobility impairment but also to celebrate the freedom of stillness.
