Since her death in December 2011 I have committed to regularly asking myself one question “How am I living?” There are some days when I’m not living. I am going through the motion and existing, or occupying. However in my commitment to living, when I am aware that I am making the choice to go through the motions I take time to stop and remind myself what I am living for, whom I am living for, and that my today need not reflect yesterday but ought to project tomorrow.
My hope for you this week is that you will be a little more conscious and a little more committed. Commit to asking yourself “How am I living?” Then be conscious of your response. If you find that you are just existing, make the conscious decision to live.
Living isn’t about the 1% or the 99%. It’s about the 100%. 100% of you should be living and not just occupying.
