A time for reflection

"The way to express our gratitude for life is by being truly alive,
not hiding from life in a corner, or watching life pass us by.
The biggest fear we have is not the fear of dying,
but the fear to be alive, to be ourselves,
to say what we feel, to ask for what we want,
to say yes when we want to say yes, and no when we want to say no.
To express what is in our hearts is to be truly alive.
If we pretend to be what we are not, how can we be truly alive?"

Don Miguel Ruiz
