Life wants to live

Life wants to survive, but life wants more than just survival. Life wants to live.

Life wants to learn, to love, to improve, to connect, to wonder, to overcome, to feel. Life wants to give.

Explore, ask questions, forgive, experiment, wander, plan, relax, and laugh. Tell stories, and make lots of new ones.

See the big picture, and attend to the small details. Find excitement in the noise, the confusion, and deepen your wisdom in solitude.

Speak your mind, hold your tongue, let yourself cry and know when to be firm. Find the beauty, especially where it’s not supposed to be.

Life wants to live in every way possible, and even in ways that are not. Go ahead, look, listen, imagine, and give life what it wants.

— Ralph Marston
