Have you ever given yourself credit for all your action in the world?
Yesterday, I decided to document my day, so I wrote down everything I did. If I turned on the fan so I didn’t roast, I did that. Any task, I wrote down. As I did this, I started to notice certain bodily feelings and emotions around certain actions.
I highlighted my interaction with my daughter in one color, physical sensations in another. I noticed that interaction with certain people caused my chest to tighten, making it hard to breathe, and I noted that when I read an email from a special person, I breathed a huge sigh of relief.
These sensations are not small. They are what make up our daily existence.
My documentation became a vivid and dynamic representation of my body’s response to the daily events of my life.
From here, I hope to bring my attention in more to how my body is feeling, since the body never lies. And then I can ensure that I fill my life with what and who is loving and life-affirming.
