When I say life, I mean the bigger picture. The feeling of being alive. The flow of life in our bodies. How our bodies digest food and turn it into energy. How our senses are constantly taking in experiences, and how our minds process that information. The way our bodies know how to move, and move in a split second. These and a multitude of other mental and physical processes.
The wonderful thing about noticing the simpleness of life is that it’s satisfying. You can get the feeling that you are taken care of. You are not alone. Life is there to support you.
The feeling of life being there for me is not a constant thought, but a background feeling of things being okay. Even in the midst of difficult moments, there’s a general sense of life supporting me. I know there’s going to be ups and downs. But life is there throughout.
My writing this is a reminder to me that I’m not alone in life. I hope that it instills some of that same feeling for you.
