I ran in the shadow of an eagle today. Sounds cliché, doesn’t it? But this was an actual eagle. I was lucky enough to be running on a trail where the eagle wanted to fly. That eagle may have been thinking about its next meal, making sure there were no other eagles in its territory, or any number of other things that eagles think about while soaring effortlessly through the sky. As I ran, all the eagle and its shadow brought me were peace and tranquility. I ran with the eagle for quite a ways before our paths went in separate directions.
Each of us share paths with those around us…family, friends, co-workers, customers, our boss, and even people we’ve never met. Here’s hoping that as we share our path, we can bring the same peace that my soaring friend brought to me today.
