Are You Really Living?

I'm trying something new today. No pictures. Just words. No excess time spent crafting a perfectly pinnable image. Just solid inspiration from me to you. I stumbled upon the most amazing quote the other day. It said, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, The Dali Lama answered:

"Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

If that doesn't make you shiver in your boots, then you're either already totally awake or you're totally dumb. (#truthbomb)

The questions we must ask ourselves and the best takeaways I can suggest:

  1. Figure out what REALLY matters to you (What are you chasing? What do you crave?)
  2. Figure out what REALLY LIVING looks like for you (What LIGHTS you up?)

Spend some time contemplating these two questions and you're sure to experience a profound shift in your life.
