There is a big difference between being alive and living. To be alive is to have a pulse, to breathe, and to have some sense of consciousness. To live is to experience life in all its fullness.
It's easy to be alive. All you need is a body that functions normally. But living requires effort. It means taking risks, making decisions, and sometimes sacrificing what you want for what's best for others.
It's also easy to mistake being alive for living. Many people go through the motions of life without ever really experiencing it. They're stuck in routines, going through the motions day after day without ever really feeling alive.
The key to living is to be present in each moment. To soak up the good and the bad, the happy and the sad. To experience life fully, without holding back.
Being alive is a wonderful gift. But living is what makes life worth living.
