Be Alive!

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”

~Keanu Reeves.


I came across this quotation a while ago and just could not resist the temptation to share it with my readers.  It is an amazing message from an amazing personality.

  1. Well said. Especially “Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure.” If we have hidden treasure, be it optimism or open-mindedness or good advice, we should share it with others.

  2. The “be silly” resonates with me. In spite of social pressure I’ve always treasured and nurtured that part of me. And blogging is the easiest way to share our truths. Happiness as a spiritual practice, life as a shared adventure.

  3. i too like Keanu Reeves. i especially liked him in the movie with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson. he was excellent in that as a young doctor. not a single over~acting moment from him. beautiful.
    nice to know he has depth of character too.

  4. A number of people I know do not find Keanu a compelling actor. I have always enjoyed his movies (fun and serious) and like what I have seen of his approach to life.
