Rhythm is an amazing thing. You can see it in most everything we do too.

Ever since my cross country days in high school, I’ve always thought the worst thing in long distance running is breaking rhythm. It takes a little while to get those legs in rhythm, but once you do, it’s like you’re floating on the ground and can seemingly run forever. But when you have to suddenly break rhythm because of some obstacle, the legs get heavy and you have to start all over again.

Same goes for music. I’m sure there’s been many times where you’re just closing your eyes and rocking out to a sweet jam (headphones or not). ┬áIt feels almost as if you’re in another world, with the sound waves and beats just coursing through you. You are in sync (haha pardon the pun). But then all of a sudden, someone bumps into you and you fall out of the music, back to reality.

There’s just a beautiful movement to rhythm, in nature, in people, and in life.

Move to the beat. Keep that rhythm flowing.

    I find that you need time before you find that rhythm. That often takes awkward rhythms – often out of sync.

      I agree, it does take some time to find rhythm. But once you do, it’s awesome.
