For those of you who don’t know this, Bywa is a Cornish word that means: to live. I recently went to a celebration of life for a friend of mine that passed away. There was one thing said over and over about him — he lived life to the full. He believed in living not existing. I am incredibly inspired by this man. I would love to be remembered for living like that; to know that what I do and how I do it encourages others to live this way as well.

I must admit that this is sometimes difficult. It’s so easy to get into a rut, a pattern of rushing through life without paying attention to it. And although it was through sad circumstances, I’m thankful for the reminder…
