Michael Franti's lyrics, "it's good to be alive today," played in my head as I biked through the woods today. It DID feel good to be alive!
I found myself riding along a path I had taken many times with my son when he was younger and a flood of memories entered my consciousness. I could see the young outline of him speeding down the trail with reckless abandon and I smiled and laughed out loud as the words, "it's good to be alive today," sang in my head.
When is the last time you felt alive? What can you do in your life to feel that MORE? What can you say YES to today that wakes up your soul?
Maybe it's recommitting to your yoga practice, maybe it's sitting on your meditation cushion and breathing, maybe it's taking that trip you've been dreaming of, or just maybe it's taking a bike ride through the woods while singing, "it's good to be alive today."
