    Most of us don’t live our lives to the fullest. We just wake up, eat, work and not even having fun. Just basically a daily routine.

    It is sad to think that people nowadays only choose to exist. Living is something that they realize would be too late to do so at the end of their life’s journey.

    To only exist is to live without knowing your mission or purpose in life. Thanks for sharing this quote.

    I totally agree with this. I, myself, couldn’t tell if I’m already living my own life.

    It is really hard to know your purpose in life. That’s why a lot of people just exist but still never had lived their life yet.

    It is not really rare per say but to me it is SPECIAL. I always see it as our journey is our own greatest magic of all. To those out there value it because fact is some people are going through hell and will give anything just to get it. Do not waste the chance you have been given.

    Indeed many people rarely live. Simply breathing doesn’t mean living!

    To live means to experience every aspect of life and enjoy it fully. Anything else is just existing.

    Bold statement. I agree. The real risk takers are the ones that challenge themselves to constantly learn and try new experiences. To really take on life, you have to step above normality.

    This is so true, most people are just existing. We strive in life to be at peace, to live, some people get it right while some don’t.
