Are You Surviving Or Living Life?

Is life meant to be survived or lived? 

A straight forward is that life it is meant to be lived- that's what 99 percent (this statistics has not been proved) you ask will tell you.

But the irony is that these people (most of us) are not "living" instead "surviving" life.

Living life involves taking huge risks. Living means you don't give a pineapple about what people think about you. Living means making something out of what life throws at you. Living involves making mistakes, learning from them and making better mistakes.

But Living is not easy....

Living life is way beyond breathing in oxygen and giving out Carbon dioxide.

So instead of living (because it is difficult) we survive....

We take shit that life throws at us and suck it in. We are afraid of launching our idea because we don't know if they'd work, so we continue with the "9-5" jobs that is killing us.

But the bitter truth is that this "survival" is killing us, it is killing our dreams, our future, our everything.

Let us stop defending the status quo (surviving) and start championing brave innovations (living).
