We never realise how much force it requires to walk until we accidentally hit a pole or a wall.

(I discovered reddit and its r/Showerthoughts community discussing wisdoms like this.)

I have experienced this literally. And I have felt it in my stomach. When it turned.

There is so much in my life that I have taken for granted. I didn’t think about twice because it was part of my every day life, nothing special. I have hit a few poles and got knocked down in my time.

It would be nice if I could say that I got up and moved on.
