Are You Alive?

“Fortune favours the brave.” -Latin proverb

Think about life for a second. And I mean really think about it. Think about existence and the entire universe.

We are lucky as hell if you really think about it. Of all the galaxies, stars, planets and particles, we are the only living creatures that we know of.

You are alive!

Take a moment for that to soak in and appreciate it.

Now think about meaning and purpose of life for a second. In the grande scheme of things does what we do really matter?

Doesn’t everything appear to be ridiculous now?

Is there really a purpose and meaning to all of this?

The only thing that should matter is doing what burns inside of you. That is your purpose. That is why you are alive.

Don’t suppress that fire inside. If you do, you’re killing the lifeline of your being. You’re basically dead then.

You’re in this miraculous world with the least possible odds of even being here, why not do something incredible with this opportunity you have?

All the worry and fear you have conceived is natural but can be broken down in just one step towards your dreams.

Even take your past experiences. Has the worry ever amounted to what you felt appropriate? After the fact, you always, always realize that the worry was just uncalled for.

So take control of your life.

(Cue inspirational/cinematic music)

Be audacious!

Be heroic in your story and for everyone that looks up to you!

Take a leap and fly!

Be brave and go boldly into the direction your heart is pulling!

The one and only purpose in life is to be alive!

(Fade music)

Are you? Are you alive? Are you truly living the life you want?

The sweetness life has to offer is left for those that go after their purpose.

Nothing really matters. So why not go all out? Why not take a chance?

    Love these words! Cause that’s exactly what I figured out about a year ago before going for Destin 50K!

    Thanks for shaping it up so neatly!
