The kind of life you lead

“You are scared of dying—and, tell me, is the kind of life you lead really any different than being dead?” –Seneca


Tough love from Seneca.

And I had one of those days today. I didn’t do a lot of living in the past 24 hours. I just muddled through and don’t have much to show for it. I didn’t cause any harm or make life worse for anyone, but I don’t have any highlights to make this day particularly worth remembering.

It was better than being dead, though.

Note to self: If you regularly remind yourself that someday, you indeed will be dead, you just might add a little more life and meaning to days that otherwise might get muddled through. Actively lead your life so you can truly live your life.
