Being alive is vastly under appreciated.

We too often
Let life be annoying,
When it’s something
We should be enjoying.

Being alive gives you an ongoing opportunity to adjust and optimize the settings on your thoughts and feelings. An analytical mind sees little meaning in life, but a deeply happy heart dances with destiny.

I see sadness as a warning light that I’m mismanaging my thoughts and emotions. I believe I’m designed to be happy. Being alive is vastly under appreciated. That’s because being alive without feeling alive gets boring.

To feel alive, ponder. To ponder is to wonder with your mind and to appreciate all the inspiration that is both around you and within you. Try pondering this: The future is never far away; the end of this sentence is the future of its beginning.

Living can be merely existing, or we can make it much more than that. Make your life more. Living from the heart is where we find meaning and purpose. Search for: Elephants INspiring The Room.

I believe that Christ came to give our dead and fallen world life. He can do the same with you, if you welcome His presence within.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
