Thousands of pixels make up the picture in a television screen. Thus, the meaning behind the title of this post.

“The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware” – Henry Miller

The pixels of life are the thousands or millions of things that are a part of our journey. Marriage, children, growing up, pain and struggle, etc.

It is important to take a moment to soak in your current state of being. View your pixels as far as your past (where you’ve walked) and your present (where you stand). Be aware of who you have become and what you want to become.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Although, I also give myself credit for trying to continuously improve in all aspects. There are those stubborn attitudes or qualities that take a little longer to adjust. Then there are some things that just define who you are that will never be changed. It is simply self-recognition.

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans” – John Lennon

We walk the path, whether you believe it is chosen for us or that we create our own. After a few years, we realize that our book is a few chapters in. What have we accomplished? What should we be proud about at this point? I’m 32 years in. There is alot to be proud of as well as alot to be ashamed of. In my book, my 2 awesome sons make it all worth it. No matter what I attribute as a ‘negative’ or a set back, I have 2 amazing seeds in Julian and Lino. My book is looking like a best seller in my perspective.

“That is happiness: to be dissolved into something complete and great” – Willa Cather

What seems like a simple idea, can prove to be the hardest thing to obtain in life – finding happiness. In some cases, it is hid under stones of struggle and heart break. In others, it is right in front of you in the form of your children or someone that truly cares unconditionally.

Be aware. Your every action and decision dictates a chapter in your book. The book of life.
