A Letter To The Living.

I once heard that funerals are not for the dead…
They’re for the living.

That thought provoking quote popped the questions… What am I doing with my life? What is life? I’m learning the answers slowly but surely. In developing my conception of life, I recently discovered two things. Life is meant for us to enjoy from the clouds above to the rocks under our feet. Birds chirping, tasty food, whole health, working with your hands, and laughing from your gut. That is what life is about. Life is also designed to leave things for the living after we’re gone. I’m currently learning that things in life are meaningless. Sadly, I tend to forget this and get consumed with worry, stress, and doubt. This very recent discovery falls together with the Martin Luther King Jr. quote, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?

“In the flush of love’s light, we dare to be brave and suddenly we see that love costs all we are and will ever be. Yet, it is only love which sets us free.”
-Maya Angelou-
