Missing My Former Self

This afternoon, I am truly mourning the loss of my former physical capacities. It’s finally mild outside, for the first time in a very long time.

I’m recalling when I used to walk, at least four miles per day at one time, without any shortness of breath. Today, just walking outside to the mailbox caused me to literally gasp for air.

I desperately miss who I used to be. I miss those physical abilities, capacities that I truly took for granted, until they were unexpectedly taken away.
