I was thinking about this a lot. What made me feel alive, what still does and what else could.
Several things can make me feel alive: nature, photography, writing, solving problems/challenges, novelty… some of the little things…
There is also one thing that makes me feel alive A LOT – love. I’m doomed, for that matter. ¯(ツ)/¯
Joke aside. There are other connections that aren’t dooming at all. Quite the opposite. Connecting with people who think alike.
Or feel alike. This doesn’t mean a need for constant interaction though. I need lots and lots of alone time which also makes me feel alive (just need to be careful about overdoing it. You can get a bit weird spending too much time on your own – been there too).
I used to look at things in a completely different way. Black and white, mostly (high five fellow borderline 🙂 ). But when you add some more colors to life, it can surprise you in multiple ways. The same goes for people. Nobody is just good or bad. We’re all a whole spectre of good, bad and everything in between.
There are plenty of videos, articles and other resources about what makes other people feel alive.
What about you? What makes you feel alive? What makes you feel alive the most?
