Be Alive

“The tragedy of life is not death but what we let die inside of us while we live.”
-Norman Cousins

Death is natural and is not meant to be a tragedy but being dead while you’re still alive…now that is certainly a tragedy.

I’m sure you know some people who look like it hurts them just to smile or who look like a dump truck ran over them and then reversed; I’m sure you know people who depress you by just being in their very presence and if you’re not careful they’ll suck the life right out of you as well!

These people, I like to refer to as the ‘living dead’ and what a waste of a great life.

Sure life can be tough, it can toss you around, chew you up and then spit you out but if it doesn’t kill you, there’s no sense in helping the process along, right?

My point is, don’t let the fire blow out inside of you, you have to constantly make life exciting and worth living.

Set goals, take on challenges, pursue your dreams, love, laugh and be kind.

Life is only borrowed time so don’t just live…Be Alive!
