Once we experience anything, good or bad, we are influenced by that experience and we can never go back to the way we were previously.
It is the memory, the creativity, and the growth that comes from our experience that brings greater meaning in our lives.
To be alive is to live out our experience.
What is the alternative, to be dead or squelch the experiences from our life?
We become more alive because of what we experience.
Let us thank the powers that be for being alive and experience life to the greatest extent today.
