The Price of Anything

There is a quote by Henry David Thoreau that says "The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it." Which in my mind, when considered that way, elevates everything we do and experience to a level of sanctity. Even mundane things like showering or going to the grocery store are enhanced because you are spending your valuable life to take care of yourself. Because we are, and because we are alive, whatever it is we choose to spend our lives doing carries weight. I'm aiming to maintain that perspective shift this week and let it leave space for more gratitude and mindfulness; we'll see how it goes. Namaste y'all.
