Life is for Living

September 29, 2012

In Maine...
My dad said something to me this summer that I’ve found myself repeating over and over again: “Life is for living.”  It’s become sort of a mantra as G and I navigate this particularly busy season in our life.

And then, when I start thinking about how we are inevitably at the beginning of this “season” that will likely last decades as it keeps ramping up, I can feel something similar to a panic attack coming on.  But if I catch myself and say “life is for living!” it somehow snaps everything into perspective, and instead of impending insanity, it just feels like we’re on the right track.

I ran across this earlier today. I’m enjoying the similar sentiment.

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
~Mother Teresa
