“The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

-Neil Peart

Welcome to the Rachel Zaccaro > RZ Blog!

Given that Neil Peart is my favorite lyricist and author, I thought it appropriate to include one of my favorite quotes on my blog (however I wished he would have said “humankind” instead of “man”).

The reason I love this quote is it focuses around using your time beyond just existing. To me, living is living outside your comfort zone, always learning and most importantly, sharing and giving back to your community.

Neil Peart helped me during the most challenging time in my life, so I understand how stories from others can help shape our own. My hope in starting a blog, is to be the words or guidance that someone needs in essence, what I needed when I was confused, lost, or unsure about my direction in life.

I hope you find these posts helpful! If you are interested in reading more, visit my Travel Blog which showcases the lessons learned and the adventures that ensued as soon as I left my comfort zone: Postcards to Iowa.
