awake and alive

Death .  Its a strong word  that can bring about alot of emotion.  For some it means the end , for others it is just the beginning  . Death. What is it really? Is it the period in our life story or just the dot dot dot? We will never know until we experience it for ourselves .  Life.  Most of us on the other hand, think we have this all figured out.  What does it mean to you?  Making money and having things?  Family and friends? Perhaps being with the one you love? Or maybe you are on the opposite end of the spectrum, and you feel as if your life is over , and that there is nothing left to live for..............
     For those of you who think you have life all figured out and think life is about something tangible,such as money, a job,an education, even family and friends, or even something abstract such as love, my question for you is that if that is truly indeed what life is all about, wouldnt we cease to exist after those things fade away?  If that is in fact the case, if that is truly what life is all about, then why dont we?
Mother teresa once said "Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it."

Are you still breathing?  Then the good news is that there is still life yet to be lived..........there is still beauty, there are still dreams to dream and songs to sing. Yes, there will still be struggles and challenges,sorrows and tragedies and what not.  I personally beleive that life is a journey to our final destination..........as long as we are still breathing there are duties left to be completed. Every sorrow, every unexplained occurence,if it doesnt kill us,  it makes us stronger............
   Life. Its a journey. Its a gift. ITs short.  YOu never know whats in store for it, or when it is going to end.Enjoy enjoy enjoy
