I believe feeling alive has a lot to do with adventure, healing, leaving people, places and things behind. Feeling alive has so much to do with experiencing things that are meaningful.
I remember what it was like to feel dead or more so like I was dying. My core needed to feel alive and I was willing to lose everything just to lose that feeling.
What makes you feel alive? What makes you feel dead inside? We can long for the feeling that the word alive brings; but will we move toward it with FULL force?
RAPID FIRE Q’s:
I feel empowered, electric, alive, the most ME when… I’m teaching during a coaching session and my client has an ‘aha moment’ or a genius take away. I’m grateful to say, they receive something in every session. They can’t leave without it...I won’t let allow it. ;)
I feel restricted when… I’m too busy to breathe. Or eat. Or stretch. Or call/text my lover.
I’m inspired by… Clean, modern architecture. Music. Paintings. Quotes. Poetry. Complex ideas, articulated in the fewest possible words. Athletes. Dancers. Actors. Anyone who’s capable of memorizing names, song lyrics + speeches. Love. Enlightenment. Sex + the healing power of touch.
The one thing I am unethical in and unapologetic about is... Going into the public bathroom and using the handicap stall. I do it 99.9% of the time and I haven’t encountered anyone who may have needed it. I pay attention every time. It’s the one unethical thing I chose to do. I hate feeling confined in a stall and closed in. I guess it’s my way of honoring how I want to feel when I pee.
My current mantra/ affirmation is… “My brain retains information easily and smoothly.”
