    We breathe in we breath out.
    We are born then we die.
    The space between breathing in and the pause and then breathing out, is where we get the
    chance to live.
    So from the moment we are born and the rattle of our last breath we are given that sacred gift of living.
    Living and existing are not the same.
    So get busy living and have no regrets. (Report) Reply
