Discussion (13 Feb) : “Living or being alive”


I am bored of my life, working everyday staring at my computer screen and solving problems that will never see the light of day. I’d like to spend summers painting in a foreign land or go on tour with my band or take underwater pictures of corals and fish. I’d like to live in those moments that take my breath away, where I forget how late it in the night it is or I laugh so hard my ribs hurt.

Should I really go out and live my dream or accept the comfort of my job? I’d live a dependent and guided life, but it would be safe and comfortable. I could complete my goals and take pride in my accomplishments. Do I really need to be “alive”? Can I create a perfect life with the funds and opportunities I have? What does being alive really mean?
