Are You Feeling Your Life?

“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.” ~ Bob Marley

 Are you comfortable in your own skin and really living your life to the end, or are you just gliding through each day not really sure of anything? We all know life can be short, and we should live it to the max, but few of us do. There is always something getting in the way–money, family, jobs, obligations galore. There’s always something keeping you stuck in the mud, isn’t there? But you promise yourself, one day you will begin living.

There’s a life force running through you begging to be free, but if you’re constantly in a hurry, or too stressed out, you will miss it as it streams. If you’ve decided hell, I don’t want to feel the pain, and have numbed yourself with pills, booze, or other silly things, you’ll sleep right through your life as it zooms by like a train. So get up! Dance, or sing, and feel all the zings. life is meant to be felt–yes even the pain.

I know it’s hard and there are times you don’t even want to get out of bed. But I promise, there will be gentler days ahead. Tough times are here to grow you into the wonderful person you are meant to be. But pal, you will never grow ahead, if you don’t just surrender to it all and be free. Feel the bad and good, and never ever, be afraid to fail.

There’s such joy in the little things, and in each breath you take that keeps you alive. Slow down and feel it all delighting in the fact that you are here at all. Go outside and close your eyes letting your senses take you for a ride. Sit in the park and hear the birds and see all the living beings. Have you noticed how their life force just sets them free?

Life is here but it moves very fast, and doesn’t wait for anything. You can’t slow it down, or put it aside for when you have more time. You just need to jump in accepting what is and  enjoying your fate to the end.

Come on, feel your life ‘cause this one won’t last for long, and I don’t know if you’ll ever have another one.
