If you had to pick one moment where you felt more alive then you've ever felt in your life...
What would you pick? Now, this was craziest beach trip I've ever taken. It was 2 a.m; we had 1 car and there was 4 us and a lot can happen with all that combined. But what did happen I'll never forget.
My friends had randomly decided to go to the beach while I was sleeping in the car. All I remember was us being at walgreens, and then waking up on the road to the beach at 3 a.m. We had just gotten to the beach and all of us fell asleep on the soft sand. We wake up and it's 7 a.m, and the sunrise had just begun. We started swimming in our school clothes. The water was freezing with it being 50 degrees outside but that didn't matter. All I remember is feeling so alive to be with my friends that were splashing me with water.
Now stop and think how many moments have you had that you would relive a billion times?
For the rest of that day, we swam until we couldn't anymore and went home exhausted.
How many things in your everyday life make you feel this alive, make you feel like this is it—I wouldn't wanna go anywhere else? Are you just living life because you have to, or are you living life because you get to? We're not supposed to be living to just survive. Life is about thriving and making the best out of what you can, so as you read this ask yourself: am I really living or just surviving? When you decide to truly live, do it with the people you love and who truly love you. Thanks for reading.
