People have often say to me, ‘live a little’.
I know I can be stiff and I can be hard on myself. Don’t get me wrong, I know what fun is. It’s just that I either don’t have the strength or stamina for it or I just come up with excuses why I shouldn’t or can’t make out time for it.
I have a lot ideas and dreams that I juggle on my mind over and over but I also can’t shake off the fact that I need a considerable amount of time to put my ideas into action. Other important things take up my time as well but at the end of the day, those things I’m not doing are the things that hunt me and say to me, ‘you could have done better today’ when I lay my head on my bed.
Different people are aiming for different things especially because it’s a new year. Yet there a many people out there too who we can connect with or collaborate with and form great alliances to achieve great goals this year. But more importantly, while we seek to achieve dreams and attain our goals, let’s not forget what is most important. A life well spent.
So maybe this is more of a note to myself that an article for the public. I dare to break the rules this year. I’m not only going to live a little, I’m going to make the most out of my life. I’m going to spend my time on those things that bring smiles to my lips when I lay my head down to sleep. I’m going to do things differently hoping to achieve better results this year. I’m going to reconnect with that youthful side of me that wanted nothing but happiness and success. I’m going to be selfish. Yes – selfish. I need to take better care of myself and pay more attention to the things that are beneficial for me. After all, no one else lives my life but me and many people die every day but no matter how much we love them, we can’t go away with them.
I’ve only got one life to live. I’m going to make every minute count. So I apologize ahead to those I might offend for being selfish or those who think I’ve become seemingly adamant. I only want to be associated with people who are on the same wavelength as I aspire to be.
So help me God!
