You can tell when someone has really lived by the stories they tell. People who are living life the right way have had experiences worth sharing.
Everybody in my life that really stands out against the noise has great stories to tell… the kind of stories that fill the pages of books with broken spines. These stories didn’t come from storytelling classes, a tenacity for literature, or vivid imaginations — they came from deliberately living a life full of adventure and boldness.
Every one of these people, rich in stories and ardor, have the same general attitude towards life challenges — thirst. They’re after experiences, challenges, and the unknown. You won’t find these people pitying themselves, complaining about their lives, or avoiding difficult situations. You’ll find them, despite all the shit that might be happening to them in life, with verve and zeal, always looking for more. You’ll find them hungry for life.
A life of struggle is much more a life than an existence of comfort.
Mmm hmm. Yup.
