Life is an intricate dance of balance. If we're awake, we teeter between bouts of terror and excitement hoping to stay afloat. The point of the experience is not to master feeling secure and learn to never take a risk. The lesson is to embrace the intensity, stay open to possibility, and live each moment passionately and fully. The past is over. The future is a dream that has yet to exist. Embrace the moment. Right now is when you are alive.
