Word of the Day: Live

Word of the Day: Live

By Syretta Jones

Live – Remain alive, support oneself, active, vivid

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi


Esperanza Spalding said is best in her song titled Black Gold. Within the lyrics in this soulful song she sang black gold with a diamond soul, think of all the strength you have in you. Therefore, I’m saying to you that it’s time for us to look in the mirror, claim our victory, state what we are going to do and set out to accomplish our life long dreams. It is time to live life to the fullest, to go for the career we have longed to be doing, to travel the world, to be the strong individual we know we can be, to see what the world has to offer and to offer the world the best of our very own being. It is time to live. It is time to release the past in order to move forward in our lives. I hope you decide to jump on the boat of life with me before we sail away to start our new journeys.
