Are You Living?


Life.
It is so beautiful
Yet it is one of the things we really don’t appreciate

The smell of morning dew
The sound of the wind blowing
All seem to be so insignificant until they go away

Today 
You woke up
You are breathing
But are you living
Think about what makes you smile
Think about what makes you sing
Think about the kindness others showed you
Think about all you say
Are you living life for yourself? 
Are you living for others? 
Are you trying to please your friends? 
Are you trying to please your mother? 
Life is so beautiful
Life is more than just finding a mate
Life is about living for you
Life is about living 
But what is living to you? 
Is living waking up each morning and going to bed each night? 
Is living completing tasks and trying to progress in areas of your life? 
Is living trying to make it into a better situation than you were born into?
Is living being completely and utterly happy
Open your eyes, and truly look within yourself. Are you happy with where you are now? Are you happy with your life? If the answer is ‘Yes’ then I congratulate you. However, if the answer is ‘No’, I would like to ask you why? If you aren’t happy about something fix it. It is that simple. The truth is, your life can be actually anything that you wish it to be. All you have to do is believe that your life is worth living, and if you really do believe that it will soon become a fact. To live life……Like truly live life, you must live for yourself. Just like the milk in the fridge, you have a limited amount of time to do everything you want to do before you go bad. Your time is so precious, so don’t waste it trying to do what OTHERS what you to do. Do What You Want with your life. 
Don’t let others opinions sway you from where you truly want to be. 
Don’t let others dreams become your own, and neglect yours. 
Don’t live for someone else…..Live for you.
Life.
It is so beautiful
Yet it is one of the things we really don’t appreciate
We don’t appreciate life until we only have a few grains of sand left in our hourglass
We don’t appreciate life until we realize that we have wasted years trying to please others
We don’t appreciate life until we realize we have exhausted so much time
We don’t appreciate life until we are looking death in the face
Too many times people lie on their death beds and think about what they wished they would have done. But I don’t want you to be like that. Live life for yourself. If you want to run a marathon, go run a marathon. If you want to write a book, write a book! If you want to be the best part on earth, do it!!! If you want to dress up and be a ninja for the day, you better dress up and be the best ninja around!!! Do what makes you happy!! Do what you love!! Have no regrets!!! Smile in your struggles and make it through your failures because in the end at least you went after what you wanted. 
 And that my friend is what I would call Living….. 

So start living today… Do what makes you happy and stop letting those little birds of negativity tweet in your ear. Stop letting your fears hold you back. Stop putting aside your happiness, because you are afraid to hurt others feelings….because in the end you will regret it.

Today 
You woke up
You are breathing
But are you living
If not…. I really hope that you start soon 🙂
