Are you keenly aware of your feet moving
in a impetuous fashion, propelling you through another day?
Are you stopping to relish in the beauty
of the radiant, shining sun, feeling the warmth blanket your skin?
Are you noticing the beating human hearts that surround you
as you walk the streets, respecting each human as uniformly important?

You are alive,
but are you living?


  1. VERY important distinction to be drawn, alive vs. living. Living is a physical state, being "alive" is a mindset. One can be living for many a year but still yet-to-be-born...

    1. Yes, to be alive requires a mindset that is mindful & aware of one's emotions and experiences. I'm trying to make a conscious effort to be a part of the minority of people who live their lives with meaning.
