Do you ever feel like you aren't fully participating in your life? Like you aren't really experiencing your surroundings? As though your senses have retracted just a little (or a lot) and you just aren't all there? Perhaps it's a result of some trauma, or maybe a slow atrophy as a result of exposure to repetitive negative stimuli. Or maybe it's just laziness--like you've put yourself on autopilot.
Lately I'm attempting to engage life more fully. I like it, when I remember to do it, but it takes effort, and I often forget and inertia takes over.
