What else is there to life other than YOUR experience?
You could have a beautiful home, own a fast car and live like a rock star. There is nothing wrong with that if that’s what you want to experience. For me, I love driving, and having mini adventures when walking my dogs across hills and through dense woodlands. I love laughing and joking with family and friends (no matter where we are in the world).
That in itself is an experience. To allow all my senses to tingle with excitement over the anticipation of what’s to come, and what is happening right now! Moments I enjoy so much I do them over and over, soaking in every last bit.
And then there’s the dreaded circles of frustration. Every experience good or bad is a test. I tend to think of them as metaphorical demons trying to block my light. After all, negative thoughts are not who I am, but I could say that about the positive.
I don’t underestimate the power either holds.

There are days when the sun shines a certain way, the smell of the trees and the countryside fills my lungs, the birds and bees dance around the flowers, and wind rolls gently against my skin and hair. It triggers new hope and life.
I know I have a choice, just like you. It’s what we look forward to, but more importantly, it’s what we live every second.
Our experience, and how we choose to view and interact with it.
You can deny it if you want, hey that’s your choice. But when you look, really look, you’ll notice…
