Sunday Reflections ~ The Rarest Thing


“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Okay now prepare yourself, I’m about to hit you with a lot of definitions. The definition of the word exist is “to have actual being; to be.” Basically you are just here, sitting on the earth, going through the motions. Now the definition of the word live is “to have life.” The definition of the word life is “the condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms.” That may seem pretty clinical and scientific, but if you really think about it, it’s not. The thing that separates us from things or dead beings is our actions. Going through the motions and never trying anything new or never  truly experiencing life isn’t living. Plus, it’s pretty darn boring. Everyone can stand to change-up their life at least a little. Travel somewhere new and truly immerse  yourself in the culture, make a new friend, heck even order a different coffee. Just try something new! You never ever want to look back on your life and wish you had done more.
