Hey there! How’s it going? 🙂 It has been some time since I actually wrote something other than a poem so I decided to share prose in this entry. I came across a question my friend asked on Facebook, what it means to one to be alive, and I thought about it for some time. Here’s what I wrote:
“I am alive when I think, when I feel, when I touch minds with my loved ones and build memories with like-minded souls. I am alive when every day is new and bright and exciting, when it is certain that I actually live and not simply exist, when I know that my emotions are pure and true and real. To be alive is to live and experience. :)”
Such wisdom! LOL. I do think we often forget to live and be alive, we just exist from day to day under the weight of our problems/burdens/concerns. Life is about balance. Make the time to enjoy, to relax, to be aware of and thankful for your blessings. Express your love for others. Hug a friend. Forgive yourself for past errors. Travel and explore the world around you. Live. Love. Celebrate. Discover. Embrace. Be Alive.
