Exist or Live?

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist that is all” – Oscar Wilde

I believe in trusting your instincts, breathing deeply enough to allow a sense of calm and living with absolute intention… intention for what?

Intention, which reflects gratitude, courage and hunger… hunger to live in a way, which makes your heart sing. Living intently to hear and chase your desires and dreams; and having the courage to dip your toes into the ocean of ‘life for the taking’.

What is life to you? Personally for me, it’s finding what makes me tick, being at peace with the realities of my own unique life and the challenges that I face and cannot always control. It’s the beauty of acceptance and the peace that follows when I surrender.

It’s learning to say ‘yes’ and when to say ‘no’ and when to still my mind so I can hear what my heart is speaking. To do more than simply ‘exist’ requires extension and the removal of self-barriers. It’s a fresh set of eyes to see with less resistance.

True living happens or occurs through self-trust and an ability to sit with what scares you the most. It’s taking the layers of the societal ‘norm’ or looking beyond what we ‘perceive’ should be our next step in life. It’s looking within, trusting your heart, your intentions and with the greatest respect for our life and the opportunity we have to be alive… it’s about doing more than merely exist.

What scares you the most? Perhaps that’s where the secret key lies to finding or understanding your heart’s desires; where you may unlock your intention, your purpose and what may just serve you to do more than only exist.
