We are born, we live, we die. That is the nature of life.
The question here is: Are we really living, or are we existing?
Some people might not understand my terminology, so I will explain.
'Existing' is just living day to day: get up; go to work if you have a job; come home; and finish the day out in front of the TV or what have you. Basically, fast paced with no time to really enjoy living.
'Living', on the other hand, is really taking the time to enjoy life to the best of your ability. It means, taking time out and 'absorbing' the things around you. Reflecting on their individual beauty.

Step outside, on your balcony, deck, porch, or yard...and really "look" at what is around you. See the flower or blade of grass for it's beauty and purpose. Enjoy it! Listen to the sounds of laughter, or birds...watch them...marvel at them. Smell the air...be thankful that it's there...and all that it does for us on this planet. If you can, touch a flower, the bark of a tree...even a brick on a building and just reflect on its creation and purpose. FEEL everything...that is "living".

Each day, 'live', 'laugh' and 'love'...and never take a moment for granted. Be thankful for every moment of every day, be thankful you are alive. Enjoy your life...just don't 'exist'.
And finally...teach your children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews well. Teach them to love and cherish all forms of life. This is what it is here for!
