Being Alive vs Living

There is a massive difference between being “alive” and “living”.

Want proof? Look around at the zombies we see in our everyday life…

No goals, no ambition, no fire, no drive, no glow...no hope.

Partying their life away every weekend...celebrating what?

It’s sad.

Don’t let that be you.

It’s easy to let life get away from us.

It’s easy to let frustration take over.

It’s easy to lose sight of just how awesome and plentiful the opportunities in front of us are.

It’s easy to look past how fortunate we are to have the resources we have at our disposal.

It’s easy to look and recognize just how minimal our challenges really are compared to others less fortunate.

It’s easy to forget that there are only so many tomorrows.

We only get so many chances.

And it happens quick!

Days become weeks, weeks become months, months become years, and years become your life.

Constantly putting off taking action toward what kind of life you really want until “tomorrow”, “someday” or “Monday” because you feel sorry for yourself and fill your mind with a million bullshit excuses is a sure fire way to never get it.

I know it’s fucking hard...so what? It’s supposed to be!

Plenty of people have had it a lot fucking harder than you (or me) and still made it happen.

So what's worse?

Putting in the hard work now?

Or never living the kind of life you really want?

Those are your ONLY choices.
