Life as we know it at times seems insanely chaotic, as if we are on a roller coaster that never ceases. Yet at times, life seems so incredibly peaceful, as if we are sailing on the calmest sea. Sadly enough, I have came to the realization that at one point in my life, I will take one last breath and life as I know it will come to an end. Recently I have been so deeply convicted to truly live my life to the absolute fullest. This conviction is not birthed out of the fear of the unknown, it is a conviction rooted in the truth that our life is a mere vapor. The sad truth is that many of us won't die instantly from a car wreck, or something else that is so tragic that it instantly takes our life from us. Many of us will lie on our death bed awaiting death to invade our human shell. With my entire being I challenge you to live. Live in such a way, that you chase after your dreams, that you chase ever adventure your soul desires. Live in such a way, that if you have to lie on your death bed and wait for death, you won't lie there in a sea of sheets of regret wishing you would have chased after your dreams. .

Very true, as most religious texts state: one should be careful and tread with caution but they should not seek comfort and absolute security in their routine and possesions.

I had a lady friend who once made the statement, "I don't want to wake up in a rocking chair one day and realize I didn't do everything I wanted to do." Because of this mindset, this lady led one of the most fascinating lives of anyone I've ever known. She simply made the decision to live life to it's fullest. Too many people take life for granted - don't take advantage of opportunities. And some merely sit and wait for life to come to them. Unfortunately, that's not how it happens most of the time. Thanks Chad for a great reminder to live.

"I'll just continue to poke fun at your dumb ass until it bores me. It's interesting that you spout out all that bullsh*t but when it comes time to put up or shut up you change the subject."
