"One of the worst things that could happen to you is to grow old without living life"
Life is divided into past, present and future. Past: mistakes made, choices taken, good and bad deeds committed, regrets, the list is endless. Present: decisions to be made, actions to be taken, places to visit, and the other pressing issues. Future: vision, purpose, direction.
No one is born perfect, so we all have to attain whatever we deem as our own 'perfect'. Sadly, many go about crying over what they are and aren't, could and couldn't, and all other things they wished they did and didn't. In this never ending journey, they miss the most important; savoring the present.
Forget the past, it's passed! Forget whatever mistakes you've made. If you can still fix them, fine, if not, learn the lesson and move on, ensuring you don't repeat them. Why kill and strip yourself of a happier today because of a past you can't change? You've aborted? You're still alive, you can be better. You did drugs? You're still alive, you can be better. You've failed in all you've done? You're still alive, you can be better. No matter the mistakes you've made, you're still alive, you can be better. Come on! Live!
Today is another shot at making a better tomorrow, why aren't you making good use of it yet? Are you wasting today crying over yesterday? Ask yourself.
Don't dwell in the past, don't dream of the future, concentrate on the now and ensure you make the best of it. Infuse your life with action, don't wait for it to happen, make it happen. Don't be scared to love, to follow your dreams, to feel pain, to take a chance, to venture into the wild, be happy for this moment, this moment is your life.
Make friends, help others, take pictures, try something new, hug when you can, just do something, be happy!
We all live once, but if we do it right, once is enough. One day you'll leave this world behind, so live a life you'll be remembered for. Live!
