Life. It’s something we all go through. Whether it’s short or long, we go through it, but we only get to live it once. I don’t know about you, but I want to live mine to the full. It’s full of chances and sometimes you don’t have a choice but to take that chance. I mean, think about it. Would you like to be there when you’re older, sitting in your little rocking chair (if you want one, I don’t know, you might want and old arm chair but wait, this has nothing to do with the topic, sorry!) and think “Man, I wish I did that when I had the chance” or would you like to be there and think “Ah, I’m so glad I did that when I had the chance!” because I know what I’d want to pick.
Obviously, when I say chances, I don’t mean things like taking drugs, drinking, smoking, teenage pregnancies, etc. because those are ways to shorten your life and chances. I’m talking about following your dreams, doing what you want to do in life and finding something new. Sorry to sound depressing, but if we don’t do things with our lives, we’re just going to be waiting until it’s our time to rip up our ticket if you will. Throughout life, I’ve always been so nervous about things and unsure of whether or not I should take risks and chances until recently. I just thought “Well, I want to try that and I’m not going to know if I’ll like it or not unless I do it, so why not just give it a go? After all, I’ll only be left wondering whether or not I would have liked it or not so let’s just risk it and see what happens.” And I did it. No regrets at all because it’s what I wanted to do.
All I’m saying is, if you’re sat there and unsure of whether or not to do something that you want to because you’re afraid, just take a deep breath, close your eyes and then do it because it’s what you want and you’ll be so glad you’ve tried it once you’ve done it. Sure, things might not work out but you’ve tried it and then you’ll know whether or not it was for the best and you won’t have to go through life wondering about it. Oh, and whatever it is you’re taking a chance to do, I wish you all the best.
