I am in love. Love. Love. Love.
Ah, did your narrow mind think of only one reference here? Smile. I am not going to talk about that kind of love here. Well, not yet anyway. Today, I am going to talk about how I am in love with the Universe.
I went running today morning in a different place. Here, the roads were wide, and the fields greener. My run today was a speed run. If you haven’t ever run before, then know that a speed run is just faster running. The kind of run we used to run as kids – just wild, free, and in love with the rhythm of your body.
A speed interval run allows you to run at a faster pace for a short duration of, say, 30 seconds or so. I love speed workouts usually. And today, I loved it more.
As I warmed up, I saw this:
Then, during the ‘rest’ periods, when you slow down, I saw the sky turn and reveal these:
I was running alone. But I felt hugged, caressed, and loved by the sheer beauty of this world we live in. No. It doesn’t mean I am all sorted out in life and I have no problems at all, leaving me free to crow about sun shows like this. No. If Life is sometimes about being in the moment, then this moment was precious. You might ask me, “Aren’t all moments precious, SM?” And yes, I agree! That’s exactly the understanding we will arrive at in life someday. I hope that day won’t be too late. That we won’t gather our withered carcasses away from the debris of life and death and then say, “I wish I had more moments that were precious in life.”
For today, I am in love. I am grateful that even if I don’t wake up tomorrow and never see another sunrise, I got to see this.
Know that the Universe has your back. Know that there is love within you and all this love outside of you.
Do you have a precious moment today? One? Many? Then, smile because you are blessed.
