The way we choose to live adds up to our identity. Every tiny action. Every single habit broken or unbroken, every human interaction made in good faith or deceivingly. And passive behaviors pile up in the same category.
Mindless living is the easy way out. We check out of our reality whenever is convenient and in doing that we allow people and experiences to run past us. Living escapes our time, our moment.
Mindless living is not a one time choice, but tiny decisions. Look up at the person next to you, engage in conversations that hurt and heal, fix with the risk of breaking, but live. Live.
