Word on the street is that the world is supposed to end at midnight tonight. Although this bit of information may or may not be true, it has me thinking: we really should live as if the world were to end tomorrow. A lot of people throw around the phrase YOLO on a regular basis, including myself, making them sound like a jerk. Although you might sound a bit asinine saying “YOLO”, the principle of YOLO is actually pretty good. We really do only live once, (a novel concept, I know) so we should make the most of our lives while we can. I’m not saying that you should go out and rob a bank because you only live once, but we should live our lives without regrets. If you have the impulse to tell a stranger you like their shoes, you compliment the living daylights out of their shoes! If you have always wanted to walk through a drive through, walk through that drive through like nobody’s business!
Don’t hold back from being yourself and doing things that make you your happiest. Don’t be afraid to be weird, silly, and goofy. Just be yourself and disregard what anyone else thinks. Do what makes you truly happy and don’t live a life in which you regret things you could have done. At the same time, don’t do things that make you happy if it means being a jerk-face to those around you. Also, don’t do things that put you or your friends in danger. The balance of YOLO takes a while to understand, but I have no doubt that you can comprehend the perfect balance.
Although I say YOLO on a regular basis (no shame), I am not a very impulsive person. If I ever do have an impulse, I over think it and convince myself to not act on it. I wish I was able to do more things just because I randomly decided to do it, rather than having the thought and then squelching the idea. I suppose I could change my ways, but sadly the world is ending tonight. If only I would have decided to fully embrace YOLO before my last day on earth. *Sigh*
Joke of the week: Everyone keeps talking about the end of the world like there’s no tomorrow!
Enjoy your last day on earth, and thanks for reading
