Movement Is Life
Updated: Feb 17, 2020
It’s when you move, that life actually happens.
Stagnation is a myth - if you’re not growing, you’re essentially dying
It’s either forward motion, or going backwards.
It’s progress or regress
It’s being respondent or despondent
If you don’t use your body, it begins to deteriorate.
If you don’t challenge your intellect, it begins you fade.
If you don’t test your will, it weakens
If you don’t cultivate your spirit, it’s slowly becomes corrupted
This forward motion, the realising of inherent potential is what essentially keeps you alive.
But it’s not just about keeping you alive, it’s about living.
It’s about generating energy, that heat that will keep your flame burning.
Without that, whatever light you have inside, will slowly begin to fade.
It’s in the reaching for, in the discomfort, in the struggle and in the movement where life actually happens
A life without possibility, without potential, is no life at all.
It’s either a life of perpetual growth, or a life of perpetual decay - and you get to choose.
Decay is essentially the beginning of the dying process.
So in order to live a full life and to realise the richness of what you’re truly capable of
You need to move
Just that little step forward, a little step each day
Move your body, move your mind
Make a decision, find a resolution, grapple with an idea, stop avoiding and attend to whatever it is that your life is calling on you to do.
And then it’s this flow, this interplay between movement and stillness that keeps your life in perfect balance.
