What does it mean…to be alive?

To be alive means diving deep into imperfection and reflecting on who you are, even for just a moment.

To be alive, means freedom.

To be alive, means struggle.

To be alive…is our purpose.

To be alive.

To be alive, means being courageous.

Letting nothing stand in your way, especially yourself.

To be alive, means sometimes walking alone in order to better understand how to walk together.

To be alive, means knowing one day we’ll no longer be alive.

To be alive, is to be right where you are here and now.

To be alive…is the journey.

…Not a destination.

To be alive…

Is life itself.

To be alive is…

To be.
