What is YoloLiveFree…?
Think with me for moment…Imagine your life is an HOUR GLASS that has been turned over the moment you were born. Each little piece of sand represents your seconds, minutes, hours, days and years of your life. Time has been ticking away as you have been living your life. Think on this…One day all the droplets of sand will have flowed to the other end of the hour glass and your time will be UP!
No one knows how much time each of us has to live here on earth. With this in mind I want you ask yourself this question…with an unknown amount of life I have left, am I living the life that I dreamed of living? Am I doing what I want to be doing? Are the things I’m spending my precious “droplets of sand” on worthy of me? Fast forward to the future when your on your death bed one day at 80, 90, 100 years old, will you have regrets about how you spent your life. Regrets about all the things you wanted to do but didn’t do. Did I waste the time I was given?
Let me ask you…what do you want to be, to do and to have in this life? Do you have a dream of doing something amazing with your life but your settling for less? Have you allowed the vicissitude’s of life to drain the dream out of you? Or maybe you have allowed the opinions of others stop you from going after your dreams because someone may have said “you can’t do that”. Or maybe you lie to yourself and tell yourself “I should be grateful for what I have” therefore attempting to achieve anything greater seems selfish. I could name a thousand excuses people give themselves to justify why they aren’t going after their dream life, but the heart of the matter is, your afraid. Afraid to fail, afraid of what others will say or think, afraid you won’t achieve your goal “so why try” right, or maybe afraid of success itself, because maybe if i get there I won’t able to maintain it…
Did you see yourself in any of those excuses? Excuses are only self imposed limitation put on you by you. I know you have a dream. I know there is a life you dream of when your day dreaming and imagining what your life could be like, only IF. The truth is you are only one decision away from achieving the life you desire. I really mean it, your dream life is only one decision away. The trick is getting you to realize how important it to make that decision.
YOLOLIVEFREE means just what it looks like, you only live once, live free! Free in mind, body, soul and spirit. I don’t mean you should live a reckless undisciplined life, its quite the opposite. Living the life you were meant to live, a life tailor made for you by you. Making your own decisions, calling your own shots. Discovering and living out your true passions in life. Living on purpose as oppose to living for others. You matter, but first you have to matter to yourself. If you don’t take care of yourself first how can you successfully take care of anyone else. You have to be fulfilled in your own space before you can offer fulfillment to others, including your family and friends. This is not about neglecting other, but about understanding that when an individual takes care of themselves first, they become an asset to the world, a fragrance not an odor. When we are ill cared for we express the results of that neglect into the physical world in the form of strife, bitterness, stress, held in resentments, you get the picture.
The good news is this is your life, you only get one as far as we know, I don’t care what religions may say. As far as we KNOW for sure, this is the only human life we get and what we do with it matters. We weren’t created with all these gifts, talents and abilities, all this uniqueness to just follow the herd. Living lives of quiet desperation, silently dying inside because deep down you know you are here for more than just working to pay the bill, raise the kids, and living for a couple of glasses of chardonnay on the weekend with friends and that’s if were lucky! Some of us have totally absorbed our lives into activities, task, and favors just to please other people, we barely have any time for ourselves and our dreams.
What would you do today if you had the unlimited resources to achieve it? Would you have spent today doing what you did yesterday? Or would you have started your singing career, maybe your a dancer at heart, or an artist, you have a secret desire to be a writer, or maybe you want to be an entrepreneur and own your own business, you might want to bake and open a bakery right on main street, or maybe you want to be a public speaker, video gamer, vlogger, photographer, real estate tycoon, stay at home mom, teacher, life coach. I don’t know what it is that you know your gifted to do, and you secretly think about it when no ones around, but whatever it is, you have got to get started because until you do, You Will Never Be HAPPY! This is one thing I know for sure. You may tell yourself you will be happy but you know the truth deep down. You Only Live Once…Act like it!
