Experience Life

April 25, 2016

Oftentimes we get caught up in what we believe is truth, without ever fully comprehending it.  We prevent ourselves from experiencing exciting new things out of fear.  We do this because of perception.  We forget that it’s all conjecture and sometimes, unfortunately, we avoid the experience altogether.  I did that with running, until I ran […]

One of the most memorable movie lines of all time, at least to me, is from The Shawshank Redemption when Andy says to Red, “I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really.  Get busy living or get busy dying.”  I remember when I first heard it I thought, “Wow, that really is a […]
