truly alive

“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

  —  Theodore Roosevelt
I love this quote!  To really feel alive we need to step out of our comfort zones and dare to do the difficult.  My greatest fear is that I will get lost in the mundaneness of life, the “gray twilight”.  Sure it’s easier to live a safe and comfortable life, but where does that take you?  Only through challenges and struggles and difficulties and successes do we grow and truly feel alive!
