A meteor or a sleepy planet, your choice.

"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze that it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." 
- Jack London
In the last few weeks I have fought with myself as I think we all are. Living life has become a challenge for the average person and if you listen to the media I guess we are all Doomed.  You know the feeling. It sits in your belly waiting for you to let your guard down and out it jumps. The little imp named Fear, Anxiety to some. You become heavy and your light starts to dim. Every thing you try to do becomes a chore and the thrill and excitement of being alive dwindles. Sounds pretty depressing, but stop breathe and send the imp running.
I like to read self-help books and list…
