The Difference between Living and Existing

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” -Oscar Wilde

Are you just going through the motions of life? Or, is there a greater purpose of your actions?

My definition of existing is breathing and taking space. Think about it, that’s what we do. 

Living, on the other hand, is having a life filled with purpose and something that ultimately the person does not even know. 

The main difference is the control and authority you have. 

Are you just going by with average and mediocrity? Or is it the best of the best?

It’s necessary to exist but in existing, you don’t have to live. 

Existing is just going by every season and minute.

Living is taking every moment and seizing the day. By the end of it, you can successfully say you ‘consider this diem carped’.

Don’t be the static/flat/round character in your life. 

Be the main character. Don’t just exist but live.
