Are you really alive or just existing?

How do you feel most days – vibrant and energetic or jaded, slow and simply getting through the days, worried about things in particular or more generally, the state of the country or the planet?  Have you lost sight of what really makes your heart sing? Some words from Howard Thurman are worth considering – "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive". How alive are you?
