45 Feeling Thankful to be Alive Quotes and Sayings

Let our uplifting alive quotes and sayings help us appreciate people and things we have been blessed with and live joyfully. 

Do we feel thankful and privileged to stay alive in daily living?

Sadly not. Our minds are mostly dissatisfied with what it has, keep desiring more, and miss greatly on innumerous reasons to stay grateful in daily life.

What does it mean to feel alive in reality?

Albert Camus quotes, ‘ But what is happiness except for the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads.’

That harmony is possible only when we are alive from within and have a worthy purpose of dedicating our life to.

Understand this deeply, if we are disturbed right now, live a stressed-filled life daily, and compensate by indulging in an overconsumption lifestyle that keeps degrading our mental silence.

Then, the quality of all different tomorrows will be equally stress-filled and lead to even more mental clutter.

The more mental distress, the more one tends to grab onto temporary gratification like partying, drinking, substance abuse, social gossips, gaming, social media obsession, glossy substanceless relationships, to name a few. 

All point to a life that lacks aliveness, and one is just dragging life without understanding one’s existence. 

How to live a throbbing beautiful life?

By relentlessly understanding the purpose of life and being authentically willing to know who is, this me that desperately wants peace through the world.

The real purpose of life is neither happiness nor sadness but being alright and peaceful from within. 

Let our daily life be spent usefully in something higher to be immersed in and gain inner richness and joy in living.

Bring that quality of living in your current life. Now life will be nothing short of a reason to stay alive, satisfied, and fulfilled.

Read core wisdom books and timeless teachings of wisdom teachers to get rid of persistent mental suffering, put an end to all our life miseries, and stay alive every moment.
