Truly lived. When have you truly lived? What say you?
Perhaps as it is written try all things and hold onto the good. Maybe then you have truly lived.
Maybe if you have given birth, and observe life take from you whom you value most, be it a loss in death or life…. Perhaps then?
I don’t know.
What I do know is what makes me feel fully alive.
Heart breaking tears.
Bonds with friends.
A husband who loves you.
Sincere words from strangers.
The deep sore inside when my kids are not around.
Missing those who are gone but carrying on.
Feeling 14, acting 37.
Smiling when you scared if you breathe everyone will feel your fear.
The words ‘It is approved’.
Living in a dream home.
Writing with tears rolling down your cheeks.
Compliments, given or received.
When you stand up again. Against the odds.
Perhaps you have truly lived when you feel true appreciation, when you acknowledge the good, when healing comes. When you don’t give up.
I think perhaps you have truly lived if you can show the same face with the happiness it carries, with the tears, with laughter and gratitude no matter who is in the room.
When your mask is gone and you feel no need to hide your core, you have accepted and take responsibility for who you are….. in actions and words – you are truly alive.
