Sep 13, 2012 Power of Walking I bet you never thought of your ability to walk as representing "power". I never thought of this, until my son made the transition from crawling to walking. He now has the power to choose where he wants to go and the power to carry things with him. He has the power to move away from things or people he does not like. He is so happy when he motors across the room with his TV control in his hand. He has acquired this power over the last month, and now I would say he is pretty good. He still falls a lot, but now he bounces back up and keeps going without hesitation. The joy he takes in walking, makes me appreciate this gift...this power...that I have taken for granted for years.
