You know something that's been on my mind day and night for a while now? Change. Even the word brings shivers up my spine. We're all the same, aren't we. We get caught up in the same old routine of things and never think to change it up. Never think that something drastic might just make us better people. Might just improve us somehow. But I truly think that going on new adventures and trying new things can not only make us better, but it can introduce us to things we never thought we would live through or see. It makes us more confident. It makes us enjoy life to the fullest.
the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked
myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I
am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too
many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Guys, I don't know about you, but I don't want to sit here and live my life the way I don't want to. I want to explore the world. I want to go on crazy adventures that might scare me at first. Because although I can't even tell you how much I hate the word YOLO, in this case it has a truly amazing meaning. Life is short. Don't get bored with the same routine. Your time is ticking and it goes by so fast. (I know, I'm a debbie downer eh?) From the beautiful lyrics from Aerosmith:
"Time, don't let it slip away. Raise your drinking glass, here's to yesterday."
So my friends, this goes out to you. May you try new things. May you never get bored with the routines of life. I don't want it to seem like I am living my life perfectly. In fact, the reason I am writing this right now is because I am wanting so badly for something major to change in my world currently. Something. Anything. I'm getting tired of getting used to doing the same old things. I do love life, but I'm ready for a change friends.
Please tell me . . . Am I the only one?
