What a Ride

karnazes_dean1
Here’s the thought I’ve shared with my yoga classes this week.

‘Life is a not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: “WOW!! What a ride!”’ -ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes

Don’t live your life under-active. You’re designed to be fully utilized and spent, wearing the smile creases of life. To fill your heart to the brim and overflowing. To not take for granted the amazing miracle that your body is. We are meant to shine, fully alive, every fiber of our beings. Get off the couch. Get your body pumping. Get on and experience life. Have a wonderful weekend!
