Live, Actually Live

“A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it.” – D.H. Lawrence

I am rewatching Gilmore Girls and in one of my favorite episodes, season 5 episode 7, there is a line that jumped out at me.

Logan says to Rory “People can live for 100 years without really living for a minute you climb up here that is one less minute you haven’t lived.” and you know what Rory climbs up there.

Rory climbs up there and I think we should all climb up some more, live a little more, and I mean really live.

It can be so easy to turn to your old ways and let your fears take over you instead of getting out there. Stepping out on a ledge and jumping, hoping that the umbrella you are holding will be enough to soften your fall and that the potatoes they tested it on were really okay. 

Saying yes to a dream without fully knowing how you are going to accomplish it. 

Pursing a craft that you have been putting off for years.

Doing little things every day that are out of your comfort zone.

It is time to live, actually live.
