I’m not saying the reason I don’t write that often anymore is because I am laid out on my couch eating ice cream and watching TV like a couch potato. It certainly isn’t like that at all. I’ve just learned to REST. When my health tells me to chill out, I listen these days. Anyways, those that know me truly know I am a reality junkie. Recently, I decided I wanted to go back and watch all the “SURVIVOR” seasons. I told you I was sick and I wasn’t kidding. I’m a dork at times, I know! It really takes little to amuse me.
Well, I was thinking as I was watching this show…..”Isn’t everyone’s life like one big gigantic Survivor Game in some ways?” Let me explain. Aren’t we all just surviving life? This isn’t a bad thing. What I mean is that some of us settle in life. We go with the flow and accept what life hands us. School, home, family, etc. We seek comfort in our own little space and just…..well……settle! For those who live this way, it is their way of surviving life. For most, they are happy and content this way. It is LIFE!
In the end, we both have accomplished the same; we have survived life! We have conquered what our souls were seeking to find a bit of contentment within ourselves. This lovelies is what we call LIFE! It is what keeps us ALIVE and HAPPY! I think somewhere, sometime in anyone’s life we make that one statement we all know. We all have thought “I wish I could have done that differently”. Well, guess what? Later on most of us find ourselves next making that one other statement. We say, “I wouldn’t change a thing”. As we roll through “surviving life” we realize no matter what way we live it, we are simply “surviving” in our way. We make the most of what we got and what we want. We thrive. We Strive. We simply SURVIVE.
Live on my lovelies. Don’t stress life. If there is something you don’t life, change it. If you are in a place where you love everything around you, don’t change a thing. Life Life! Love Life! In the end, all we are doing is “Surviving Life”. You got this! Make it Count!
