Sometimes, it’s more confortable to just take no risk in life. To just go to work, pay our bills and do what we need to do to…. survive. A tasteless, boring existence. A lonely one, too, most of the time. You are not living, you are surviving. You may be in this situation because you suffered too much in the past and you decided to cut yourself from anything that may be painful, or you may just don’t know why you are where you are. But at some point, you just can’t stand it anymore and you feel the need to change.
Thing is, when you decide to stop surviving and start living, it’s scary. It means you will be ready to take risks, to give a meaning to your life, and that it will worth it. If you believe you will enjoy your life and not just going on with this boring, tasteless thing you call life, then you are ready to take a further step in the right direction. It’s this belief that it will worth it that will keep you going on the path of true life. And it will bring you pain, fear, but also love, happiness, and this sensation of fulfillness you can’t have by just surviving.
So just take a first step. Decide now is the right time to live. Truly, really live. Fill it with all you find on your way, learn, grow, and enjoy each breath. You are alive, and it’s only the begining.
So, this week challenge is the following:
- quote: Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.

Here are the rules:

- The goal of this chalenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
