Near the end of “The Shawshank Redemption” when Redd is out of jail and a free man he is not used to life on the outside, he even contemplates what he can do to go back to jail. Eventually he comes to a realization and says he either “get busy living or get busy dieing.”
As I continue my healing process and move through this transition in my life and evolve. I could just sit and wait until I am all fully healed to really live my life and do things or I could continue living my life, as this passes, and the more I live my life, the quicker this will pass and I will feel well and alive and fully healthy and happy.
I have some great people in my life who told me this recently and I am glad they reminded me of this.
