Being alive is different than actually living

Just a quick post before we take off for Napa. I was sent this cute image in an email and loved the saying and wanted to share it with you. The art is by Leigh Standley of .

Notice that the name of her scooter is Spirit, how cute is that? I love the quote and the image, they are both so fun and so free! It made me think of a favorite quote that has a similar message.

I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.

- dawna markova

I have much to say on this topic, but am short on time, so I will post again soon with more. Hope your having a beautiful Sunday!
