Mindfulness and existentialist writings in an age of anxiety

Losing balance and readjusting

Sometimes life can throw us off balance. Literally!

I remember back during my college years I was riding my skateboard around campus, and I hit a bump in the sidewalk that sent me flying several feet away from my board.

Thankfully, I landed in a patch of grass. But man, it really did hurt.

In life, from time to time, you fall and get injured. We’ve all heard the ol’ cliche that when you fall you have to get back up again.

But it’s not just about getting up. It’s about stopping, thinking, and readjusting. Sometimes we allow life to carry us along for the ride instead of dictating the speed at we wish to go.
