Don’t Miss Your Slice

Happy Friday, friends! It has been an interesting week for me, as I was very much under the weather since last Sunday morning. Today is the first day I woke up feeling like myself again, and for that I am thankful. I am glad to be back today to post this week’s Quote of the Week and a few thoughts around it that are swirling in my brain. Let’s jump into the quote, which reads as follows:

Life is not something you get; it’s something you experience. Life exists with or without you. It has been going on for billions of years. You simply get the honor of seeing a tiny slice of it. If you’re busy trying to get something, you will miss the slice you’re actually experiencing. What actually gives life meaning is the willingness to live it.

Michael A. Singer – The Untethered Soul – pg. 161

Once again I was awestruck by words from Michael Singer’s book The Untethered Soul. I finally finished working my way through the book about two weeks ago, but I saved these words (along with many others) on my phone and I cannot seem to stop reading them over and over again. How beautiful it is that I get to be here, that I get to experience this tiny slice of something so precious. The people I love, the experiences I go through, the emotions I feel, my unique soul… it’s all part of something so much bigger than I can even comprehend. And yet, I get to be here. My life matters. And so does yours.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… there is no one like you. No one will ever live the life you are living right now. I am saying that as much to myself as to you, friend. Let’s enjoy this beautifully precarious slice of life we have the honor of experiencing, while we have the honor of doing so. It truly is amazing.

A little more hopeful today,
Sonja K.
