When the air you breathe feels different, causing an itch as it rushes through your nostrils, you become more self-aware.

When your skin feels hot to your touch, you drop everything else to understand what is going on.

When the saliva in your mouth starts having a taste – bitter or sweet, you swallow deeply and tune-in to self.

When your eyes are bringing in distorted images, you shut them to attempt a reset.

When your ears start ringing, you find a quiet place to lower your head.

Life uses anomalies to bring us into the present. It understands that we overlook its many free gifts until they are distorted.

Some people have found a way to proactively acknowledge life’s gifts. They choose to avoid a wake-up call from life.
