Am I Living or just Alive

Life is but an illusion. All the concepts of society programmed into our minds. We are domesticated in the way we are told to live and dream and so, can’t really truly be ourselves. We’re so scared to break the norm and just be who we really want to be. We don’t want to risk being passionate because we don’t want to go against societies rules. Growing up we are taught that following the rules of home and school will result in rewards and breaking the rules, will lead to punishments so as adults we are programmed to believe that.

Children are different. They do as they please. And they are happy. I understand that as adults we have responsibilities but life should be seen as a gift, something to enjoy.

We are surrounded by an artificial world, from technology to concrete jungles. We need to remember to live rather than just be alive. Take moments out of your day or week and go to a park or a beach, climb a hill. Do something, anything nature related. We are all amazing people on a beautiful rock in an amazing universe. Appreciate everything we have, as simple as a tree or as mysterious as the ocean. Give thanks for it, show your gratitude. We are only here for a little while as the people we are right now, lets show that we are grateful for this life.

Remember, “it’s better to die living than to live like you are already dead.”
