For me, the beauty of reading about other people's lives on the internet (usually in blogular form) is that it constantly reminds me to LIVE. Not to sit it out and let life lead me, but to take trips, to seek out new experiences, to eat great food, fat and calories be damned. To dance, to act in front of people, to DO.
I don't always do it, of course. I watch lots of movies indoors with tea and the cats on the couch. But I'm going to think of that as getting rest so I have energy for the adventure parts. I need to be well rested if I'm going to do all of the things.
