On My Radar: Living Life to the Fullest

I found this quote while on tumblr (truth, I probably should have been doing homework) and it really got me thinking.  Lately I've been in a bit of a rut and this is exactly what I needed to hear.

Today was one of those cold rainy days where all you wanted to do was stay in bed and watch movies. (I wish) Instead I had three classes and spent the rest of the day catching up on homework and studying for a midterm. All these tasks just seem mindless and without purpose. It's weird, I know what I want to do with my life but am at the point where I'm stuck in the middle. I'm half way there but am still so far away.

I have a plan for my life and have my goals all mapped out but sometimes I wonder if what I'm doing is right. Will all this time and effort get me where I want to be? And on top of that will I enjoy any of it? I don't want to go through life always thinking about the future without living in the present.

At some point I have to start living. Doing what I want. Doing what makes me happy. Doing what will allow me to succeed.

How do you know when you've started living? Thoughts?
