Come Alive

Day 267

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

– Howard Thurman

I came across this thought-provoking post by Angel Chernoff, but at the end of her post, she says to ‘go forth and be the change you want to see‘. I’ve left that part out below in today’s Food For Thought Friday series post for you to fill in the blank for yourself.

Imagine a world where you have an endless number of ways to feel alive...

Imagine

…trillions of reasons to never be bored

Imagine

…an infinite number of beautiful things to create

Imagine

…already so many beautiful things to behold

Imagine

…and 7 billion crazy characters to play along with.

Imagine

As you know, this is your world.

It’s filled with more potential for pleasure, love, glory, beauty and bliss than can be comprehended.

It even surprises you with misfortune so you can experience the full range of your explosive emotions, and so the good things are that much sweeter.

Even better, nothing great comes easily.
That would be hopelessly boring.
You have thrilling hurdles to overcome around every corner in order to achieve greatness in this world.

The icing on the cake is that it doesn’t go on forever.
How special would anything be if you had an eternity to achieve it?
How precious would life be?

This world – this life – is amazing!
It is perfect just the way it is.

Go forth today and…

And what? What makes you come alive?

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
