But the more I walked, the more I felt pummeled by my thoughts. Thoughts about all the opportunities I had missed, all the people I had failed, all the relationships I had ruined.
I was beset by my thoughts. I could not go on. I sat down on a bench.
I heard birds singing. I smelled wildflowers. I felt the sun on my face. I saw trees and a field of tall grass.
Then I let go of my thoughts.
