Living or Dying, Your Choice

Posted on: October 23, 2008

“Get busy living or get busy dying” -Andy Dufrane (Shawshank Redemption)

This is one of my favourite quotes. To me, it sums up the only two choices we really have. Many will disagree with this sentiment. Yet, when we break it all down, everything ultimately comes back to these two choices.

Sadly, many choose to “get busy dying”. They allow others to dictate the type of life they will lead. This allows them to blame others when their life fails to turn out the way they desire. Of course, they will use all kinds of justification for the way things are. However, their deep-seeded resentment and unhappiness comes from settling for a meagre existence.

Personal responsibility means that you take control of your own life. Too many want to cede that to others.

The above kitten found while looking across the internet and it made her think, lol ok she knows that’s not a good thing at times but this time she thinks it is.

We do have choices, and those choices are to live our lives as we wish to, in a way that makes US happy even if society says “ No that’s wrong, you should live it this way, like everyone else “ or we can stagnate, we can ‘exist’ and not actually live.

Kitten is a slave as that is what she chooses to be, she WANTS to submit to her Master and she WANTS to serve Him in anyway she can, this might not be to everyone’s liking but that is their problem not kittens, she is LIVING her life and not just existing as she waits for old (er) age to claim her, she wants to actually enjoy the things she loves and she wants to feel the pleasure she knows, yet at the same time she wants to actually be alive while this is happening, not look back in years to come and always have regrets and wishes unfulfilled.

Sometimes its hard when faced with prejudice and scorn, when others will not accept that how you want to live and with whom you want to live is a choice they cannot make or influence, the more they push the more kitten digs her heels in, she wants her life and she wants it on her terms, well relatively speaking of course!
