This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?

I don’t want to hate on any of the reverb10 prompts because I think that’s mean. These people are putting ideas out into the world which I appreciate. And I am not a hater.
I will say that I’ve certainly paid more attention to my body since becoming pregnant which, I guess, is a form of being more present. During the first trimester a cramp that would have normally been ignored was instead labeled as a possible sign of miscarriage. A month or so ago any sensation in my midsection was analyzed for the possibility of being official Marshmallow movement. Or gas. And today I feel all kinds of turbulence on a regular enough basis that I can tell with 78% certainty when it’s 8:30pm because that seems to be the time he goes on his scheduled evening jog. Little man is disciplined and I have no clue where he gets that from.
