To Live

Finally, we will discuss what it means to Live.  Anyone can live, but not many Live.  What is the difference?  Lowercase living is just the area between birth and death, and gain average memories throughout the process.  To Live is to take the process into your own hands and increase the quality of your memories. 

No matter what you do, you gain memory.  The memory could be of laying in bed, trying to fall asleep, a quiet walk through the woods, or proposing to someone you love.  The average person will have an average set of memories.  The apathetic person will have a lower quality of memories.  But a person who chooses their actions with care will have a higher quality of memories. 

So what do I mean by quality?  Sitting alone in a dark room reflecting on life may be helpful, but you probably won't gain any worthwhile new memories from it.  Going to Disney World by yourself or with others probably will.  Whitewater rafting, skydiving, or a cross country roadtrip also help create some amazing memories.  Reading a book for the first time helps the imagination (and puts that into memory!) but the tenth time only refreshes it.

To Live is to jump at the opportunity to go on a new adventure.
