To Live is the Rarest Thing in the World

"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”-Oscar Wilde
It is so easy to fall into the trap of mindlessly going through the motions of our daily lives.  Many people spend the majority of their time at work, school or taking care of various responsibilities.  Perhaps they dream of exciting things they would like to do, or activities they would like to try someday when they are not so busy.  However, unless time is set aside and plans are specifically made, chances are their life will end up passing by without the experiences they had dreamed of.  

It is important for us to find a good balance in life.  Work, education, and responsibility are important, of course, and should have a prominent place in our lives.  At the same time, we must make it a priority to enjoy life, and actively plan and participate in hobbies and experiences that will bring us joy and happiness.
