“Walk like you’re one inch taller.”
Dawn, my new physical therapist, was coaching me to walk properly last week. She’s helping me to improve my posture and alignment in order to heal from birth injuries.
As you’d imagine, I’m taking this work seriously. I’m on time for every appointment, giving each exercise my all.
But those 6 words nearly stopped me in my tracks.
The ears of my soul perked up, like a cat at the sound of kibble. That’s what my body feels like when it hears something true; my inner animal snaps to attention.
