Live More Life


You know me. I’m always thinking, scheming, wondering where I will find my next adventure. And, ever since I came back from my way-too-short vacation in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico I’ve been thinking a lot about my desire to live more life.

I think I really make an effort every day to do more, feel more, connect more, but I’m never really satiated. I keep reminding myself that living more life is not necessarily about more money, more traveling or fancier possessions. It’s about being incredibly present in your every day, and connecting with your surroundings; learning to derive great pleasure from small coincidences and a great cup of coffee, a new experience or just a sunny day.

In that vein, I thought I’d do something I rarely do anymore, and would really love to get back into more. That’s right. I whipped up a little poem about living more life. I hope it will feed you a spoonful of inspiration today, or at least that you won’t think it’s terrible! Here it goes ya’ll.

I want to live more life.
I want to breathe richer air, and always push to be fair.
I want to reach just a little higher. Add flame, not water, to my fire.
I want to harvest more passion that I can handle. Let it take me farther.
I want to live more life.

I want to live more life.
I never want to settle for just good enough. Giving up makes life too unbearably rough.
I wouldn’t dare put a muzzle on my dreams. It’s they that keep me alive it seems.
Listening to naysayers just isn’t my style. Just let them talk for a while.
I want to live more life.

I want to live more life.
Make some small difference in people’s lives. Sounds corny, right?
I want to be more than just regular. I’ve always felt a little bit special.
I want to give myself more chances than most people think they deserve.
I want to live more life.

I want to live more life.
Express more, connect more, feel more. I want to be so human it hurts.
I don’t want to hide from the struggle. I want to go out and fight it with grandeur.
I want to experience more, take more risks. Fall down and get back up again enough times to know I’ve lived more life.
You get me?
I just want to live more life.
