Interesting People Live Deeply

I’ve once heard it said that it’s not the days in your life that matter, but the life in your days.

Interesting people know that even if you live a long time that life is still short.

They know that time is not to be wasted and opportunities to feel alive are not to be missed.

They know this with things both small and large.

How many times did you not do something because it was scary in the short term, but you regretted it later?  Did you not hop on that roller coaster?  Did you stay at home surfing the internet instead of going on a date?  Did you not take an exotic trip because it wasn’t the “responsible” thing to do at the time?

The real irresponsible thing is to be blessed with this gift of life and not take it all in deeply.

“Drink deep the cup of life; take it’s dark wine into your soul. For it passes round the table only once.” – Jack McDevitt

How many times do you eat a meal and not even taste the food in your mouth?  Sure you have a general idea of the taste, but your mind is elsewhere or off worrying about something else.

How many people numb themselves at night with mindless television watching?  Most people spend hours a day doing this.

One of my favorite quotes that I’ve read in a book (and I’ve read many) is as follows:

” In these plethoric times, when there is too much coarse stuff for everybody and the struggle for life takes the form of a competitive advertisement and the effort to fill your neighbor’s eye, there is no urgent demand either for personal courage, sound nerves or stark beauty, we find ourselves by accident. Always before these times the bulk of the people did not overeat themselves because they couldn’t, whether they wanted to or not, and all but a very few were kept “fit” by unavoidable exercise and personal danger. Now if only he pitches his standard low enough and keep free from pride, almost anyone can achieve a sort of excess.You can go through contemporary life fudging and evading, indulging and slacking, never really hungry nor frightened nor passionately stirred, your highest moment a mere sentimental orgasm, and your first real contact with primary and elemental necessities the sweat of your death bed.” – HG Wells


People avoid physical pain thinking that that is what life is about yet they accept the greater pains of leading a boring, uneventful life.

… or they live in fear.

How deeply are you you living your life?  Do you find joy in each day?  Do you look back on your days lived as a masterpiece or do you just drift by in the shallows?

Live deeply, love deeply, drink deeply of this gift anyone reading this has been blessed with.

Die tomorrow, but live today.
