It was a question in a game we were playing today and it kinda makes you reflect, doesn’t it? What would you like to be remembered for? What would you like your life to be about? What is it you are all about, truly?
On my stone I would like it to say: “She lived.” At least, that was the first thought that popped up in my head. I’m not sure if I would actually want that to be the text. I’m not even sure I want a tombstone. It feels limiting. What I mean though is that I want to live. I want to be free in my living. I want to live a life without self-imposed restrictions. I want to be fearless in my approach to life. I want to be as happy dancing with the stars as with the raindrops. I want to dare to live. I don’t want to think that life will start when and if and where. I want to live right now, fully here in every moment, because truly, who knows what’s next?
They say that all you really know is that you will die, but that’s not entirely true. Because you know you will die you also know that now you are alive. And as a human being, it seems to me you have a choice to explore that aliveness. Even when you taste drops of salt, you know that soon the sound of laughter will be coming out through your mouth. You can feel, you can taste, you can breathe. You are love when you experience it.
I don’t know, but to me there is a difference between being alive and truly living alive and to truly be able to live alive is what I would love to do.
