Don’t be a visitor to this world
As time moves on, and I reflect back on life, there’s an urgency to live life fully; no messing around. Depression has zapped much of my younger years and so it’s time to pack in meaning and spin off significance like never before. One of the quotes I have found incredible powerful to send me on my way is by Mary Oliver. I thought I would share it with you…
..when it’s over, I want to say: all
I was a bride married to amazement
I was a bridegroom, taking the world
into my arms
When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something
particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing
or full of argument.
I don’t want to end up simply having
visited this world.
