What does it mean when we say to one another, “Be sure to live your life”?

Do we sometimes make “living our life” into something too exotic, too epic, too Hollywood to realize that we really just exist one breath at a time?

But more than that, does thinking about “living our life” as a continual quest for more experiences, more happiness, more everything mean we forget that each breath we take is a gift?

Perhaps “living our life” really means nothing more than waking up each morning, taking a breath, then taking another breath and greeting each moment as it comes.
