"Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh with your whole being. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be ALIVE.”
William Saroyan 

Needed this little message this morning.  It is so easy to fall into the habit of just existing. I don't need big excitement every day,  I can be happy just taking pleasure from things that are there already.  Operative word is taking.  Being alive is a concious decision, you have to be attentive or you will miss it.

  1. You have said it beautifully, Megan, I agree with you that sometimes we have to wake up and we have to be aware of our existence :D! (I hope you can read what I wrote, my English is no that good...)
