Is Life Passing You By? Take Action

Is Life Passing You By? Take Action

So many times, people have said; “Life is too short to waste on meaningless things.” Most people like myself, agree with this saying. As many should already know, we can’t pick and choose when we want to leave this world, so we might as well live each day like it’s our last. Right?
Speaking from personal experience, it’s hard to try different things when it comes to living life. Whether it’s riding a bike for the first time, traveling to a different country, sky diving, etc. it’s all a part of living life and taking chances. A child know there is a risk of them falling flat on their face when first attempting to ride a bike. Someone knows of or seen in films, when traveling abroad takes a horrible turn and there are facts and evidence of people who died from sky diving. We all know the risk of trying and experience new things, but that should never stop us from having these experiences. After all, if it’s meant for us to go, there is no escaping it.
I guess I can say I grew up sheltered. I wasn’t oblivious to what was going on in our world, but I wasn’t as “street smart” as other people I knew. Because of this I was afraid to try new things. It could be from going to one of the crazy popular parties, that anyone who was in school in South Bend between 2003-2008 (give or take) should know about or maybe just getting on the highway with friends for a road trip. I had issues with becoming involved with such activities. This wasn’t because I was afraid too, I really just didn’t want to try new things. I didn’t do the partying that most people my age enjoyed doing.
Each of my four years in high school, someone was murdered. By the time I was senior I realized that I didn’t want to live a closed and boring life. I want to have awesome memories with people that I care about. The day that I finally leave this world, I want people to look at some pictures and just smile and with an awesome memory of me in their mind.
In comparison to others lives, I still live a boring life, but to me, its fine for now. I have changed 100 percent since high school; my personality, my spirits, me mentality and my image. I’m no longer afraid to try new things. Not only for the experience of it all, but just to say to I did it. As I stated before, we can’t say who’ll be here tomorrow or even in the next couple hours. Too many people are dying young without being able to achieve their dreams and/or goals. I laugh, joke and smile every day. I’m making sure I’m going to achieve as many goals and experiences as I can before I say my finally good bye. Life is too short to waste it on people who don’t believe in you, jobs that won’t benefit you, cities, that aren’t made for you and unattended goals, which are waiting for you.
If you still don’t understand the moral of this story by now, I’m just saying take chances, take risk, go for all dreams and achieve them, there is a way you can have fun living life while still being responsible.
