“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell, and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
This quote was intended for writers, but I think it could do all of us some good to follow it. What if we all slowed down enough to appreciate our food and didn’t eat on the road or standing up? What if we all lived each day with the intention to be aware of ourselves and emotions? What if we lived with a vibrancy instead of going through the motions. What if?
