Camino Gifts

Camino Journal
Entry #2: 02.05.18

In her memoir, “Walking Home: A Pilgrimage from Humbled to Healed,” Sonia Choquette shares that “the Camino gives you a gift each day if you pay attention enough to receive it.” I love this idea of increasing awareness as I prepare for the Camino – not just in my training, but also in my every day being. To be open to the gifts and lessons right here in front of me.

Today my walk offered me two gifts:

1.     The more you walk, the stronger you become – body, mind and spirit.
2.     You need to go somewhere unfamiliar to find your way home.

Note to self: Charge your cell phone before you walk into unchartered territory.

Sono luce (I am light) – and so are you,
