TDoT(25): The reason you believe you’re still alive today

How funny. Why do I believe I'm alive?

Literally, because I can see myself breathing. Because people tend to look at me and speak back to me when I speak to them. This lets me believe I’m alive, and not a ghost flitting about. I’d think those are both fairly obvious signs of my aliveness. There are more, lots more, but I think I’ve made my point.

Metaphorically (which, I guess, is what they're aiming for here) , I think I’m here to do my bit. To live, laugh, and love as much as I possibly can, leaving behind only good things when I go. Before I start sounding like a self-help book, let me stop there.

I don`t mind a good self-help book if it speaks of such plain and simple truths!
That people answer you does not mean you are alive and awake. These last nights I had such vivid dreams that I was CONVINCED I was really playing football with the other guys and talked with my 115-year-old uncle! What if my life is only a dream?

Oh Geli, so true! I hsve also been having the MOST vivid dreams where, when I wake up, I have to really think hard to wrap my head around that it was just a dream x
