Here’s a question I came across recently and took some time to consider my answers. When I really thought about it, the experiences that have made me feel most alive haven’t necessarily been the big, grand, well planned times. When I really took the time to think about it, the times when I have felt most ‘alive’ have either been times riding a bicycle with the wind through my hair, taking in the scenery around me, or swimming in a lake, a river or the ocean. When I really thought about it, these have been the most wonderful, exhilarating experiences for me.
It was good for me to reflect on these because now I know what I can do to help re-create those good vibes. I can simply jump on my bicycle and ride it, or else I can go for a swim that’s not in a pool, somewhere in nature. That actually fits really well for me because I know spending time in nature really energises me. Nature recharges my batteries, helps me to feel grounded, calm and ready to take on life’s challenges as they arise.
What experiences have made you feel most alive?
