As Gibran Khalil describes in his poem

Do not love half lovers
Do not entertain half friends
Do not indulge in works of the half talented
Do not live half a life
and do not die a half death

All of us had been living half
Do you remember a time,
when you were complete in that moment?
When you were all in or all out?
When there was no in between?
No doubt
No confusion
Just full you
Full me

Even the smallest of things that we do, we do them half

Even the things that we are doing everyday, we do them half

Have you noticed ever,

While slipping in your shoes which foot you always step in first?

The answer will be no.

We do a thing everyday
We do it, just to do it
Our attention is always lost

We do it half

Then what is the point to discuss being 100% in the biggest of things??

To live 100% asks so much attention

Attention to details
It asks valor

Confidence,Trust

We humans, despite of the biggest power of descrition

Choose to be in the cocoons of comfort all our lives
And on our death beds
Most of us wonder
That we just lived half a life!

And Khalil further says,

If you choose silence, then be silent
When you speak, do so until you are finished
Do not silence yourself to say something
And do not speak to be silent
If you accept, then express it bluntly
Do not mask it
If you refuse then be clear about it

And who could have said it so beautifully than him…..
