Life Is Meant To Be Lived

You have to chase the things that ignite you. You have to do the things that bring you joy. You have to surround yourself with the people who bring you back home to yourself, with the people who respect you and embrace you in ways that make you feel like you are worthy and accepted and loved. You have to do the work to heal yourself, even when it hurts, especially when it hurts, so that you do not continue to approach your life within the boundary of what is heavy within you. You have to put yourself out there, and you cannot worry about what other people think, you cannot rob yourself of experience or happiness or inspiration because you are scared of how you will be perceived. You have to be unapologetic in the way that you exist here. You have to believe that your ideas, and your hope, and your being, deserve to take up space. You have to believe that you have purpose.

Because our existence is finite. And as hard as that is to understand, as hard as that can be to connect with, from time to time remind yourself that in the most human way, we are all living on borrowed time. We live as if we are promised the experiences and the potential we are chasing, we live as if we have control over what happens to us. But we don’t, and that is liberating, because it is pressing, there is urgency within the lesson. It is meant to wake you up.

      We all know someone living a full life. It’s the person who manages to maintain a busy, yet seemingly balanced existence filled with variety, satisfaction and joy.

      When you dedicate yourself to living life to the fullest, you feel like you can overcome anything. Each day is an opportunity for greatness, and you feel fresh and ready to find it. Living life to the fullest means you are in tune with yourself. This allows you to make conscious decisions that directly affect you

      According to Frankl, meaning can be found through: Experiencing reality by interacting authentically with the environment and with others. Giving something back to the world through creativity and self-expression, and, Changing our attitude when faced with a situation or circumstance that we cannot change.

      A meaningful life connects people to a larger sense of purpose and value, making positive contributions, not only to our personal and spiritual growth, but also to society and the human civilization as a whole. Life full of purpose

      When I think of loving the life you live, I think not only of finding joy but also nurturing the life you were given: Take care of your body physically: eat right, sleep, exercise. Mind your mind: combat stress, embrace the positive, don’t stop learning.

      Life’s purpose is to live. All life wants to live. From an experience perspective, we can’t experience meaning without consciousness. If there were no consciousness in the universe, things would happen, but there wouldn’t be anything to experience that meaning.
