What a strange reminder our bodies can offer us.
At multiple times daily, I catch myself in a moment where silence prevails. But even in that silence, I’m offered a rhythmic reminder of moving on. In traffic, after running, thinking of what to write for a blog post…heartbeat is always there. It is a very pleasant cue to remind me that there is a pattern of motion to everything, that everything keeps flowing, even when silence seems to be the loudest noise.
Taking the physical aspect of heartbeat aside, this also brings me back to teaching and coaching. It is important to always know the heartbeat of the team. What makes it go quicker, what slows it down, and what prevails even in the silence of the day.
