This has been the one thing on my mind to write today. This is definitely not an exclusive list. Please add yours in the comment, I'd love to hear it.

Those who truly live are;

Those who damn fear

Fear harasses everyone, what differs is our reaction. Our reaction in the face of fear isn't built the day fear pays a visit. 

Courage can be learnt. It starts with not getting agitated over the not so big things. Fear is inevitable, start learning courage.

Those who look at failure in the face and laugh

Some have learnt how to handle failure than others. When the worst happens. When that great and mighty concern eventually become a bad experience. 

Your reaction is more important than the event. Keep moving, and laugh while doing so.

Those who understand that people are not things

"Self-made" That word is a myth. You'd have to explain it mischievously for you to even deceive yourself to believe it. 

We all owe something to people. It might not be those you felt should be there. But some peoples' work and efforts made yours easier. 

See people as they are, humans. 

Show love. 

Give love. 

Expect nothing in return.

    @seunoyebode - Agreed with all three. It's so true, it chokes. ?

    I would add..
    - People who can park their ego outside when the situation calls for it.
    - People who can learn to apologise when needed
    - People who have mastered the art of really listening
    - People with humor especially those who can laugh at themselves
    - Optimistic people
    - Most importantly for me - people who enjoy music and dance.... usually are really living..?

      @keni True words.
      Those who have mastered the art of really listening. How often do we literally jump into conclusions.

      I agree with everything.
