Live Like It’s Your Last Day

So, I was watching a show and it triggered my little brain into deep thinking. It really doesn’t take much. Anyway, it got me thinking about life and why so many people sit on the sidelines of their own lives, just watching life pass by. This is what goes through my head.

You can live life one of two ways:

1. You can sit back and watch it pass by with nothing really going on. Just day to day, same old stuff. Wishing you were out doing something that you heard or saw someone else do. Or……

2. You can go out and live each day like you won’t get another one. Go out and do the things that you love to do, want to do, or just feel like doing for the hell of it. Do what makes you happy.

Another day is not guaranteed. Living everyday as though it’s your last, in my opinion, is the only real option we have because today may just be your last. Don’t be there about to die regretting not doing enough, not loving more, etc. Don’t die wondering what could’ve been, might have been or should have been. Don’t live your life thinking about the what ifs in life and just go out and do it. There are endless possibilities in life if you open yourself up to them.

Love more and harder. Why be scared of something wonderful? Why? Because if it doesn’t work out you’ll be hurt? But why risk losing love in any form? In a world full of hate, why not open yourself up to love and let it in?

Taking chances opens up opportunities and allows us to learn and grow. If we sit back and are too afraid of what might be (in a negative sense) we can lose out on some pretty amazing experiences and people. Fear of pain is what stops so many of us. When you can clear yourself of the negatives associated with fear and pain, you can live freely. You open your life up to endless possibilities. And that, that’s the real secret to life. Letting go of the fears, pain, negative ways of thinking. Stop limiting yourself to what you want or think you can do. Go out and just do it! Make it happen for yourself. It will be worth it, no matter what the outcome.

Peru – Day 12 Last Day (5/27/2017)

Travel day, literally. I did not sleep last nigh. I fell asleep around 8 pm and woke up around 11 pm. And of course, I could not fall back asleep. With having to be up at 2:30 am to catch  my ride to the airport, what was the point? Continue reading Peru – Day 12 Last Day (5/27/2017)

Peru – Day 11 (5/26/2017)

The last day in Peru. Some of us flew back to Lima from Cusco. We got all checked in to the hotel and got our rooms. My room wasn’t as nice this time around as it was the last stop in Lima, but it was ok. It was a bed. I have to be up at 2:30 am to head to the airport tomorrow anyway.  Continue reading Peru – Day 11 (5/26/2017)

Peru – Day 8 (5/24/2017)

Once again, the wake up call sounded more like a fire alarm than a wake up ring. This time, I was already up so no wetting the bed on this one. I got everything ready to head to Machu Picchu and went to breakfast. Continue reading Peru – Day 8 (5/24/2017)

Peru – Day 7 (5/23/2017)

The wake up call was more like a fire alarm. Scared me awake. Not cool. Got up quick and went down to get some breakfast before heading to the airport.

We landed in Cusco for the Machu Picchu adventure. It started with a Thanking Mother Earth ceremony, done by a local shaman. We made three wishes using three cocoa leaves that would later get burned. The ashes return to the Earth and the smoke goes up to the universe. It was really interesting and I enjoyed it. It was something different that not many people get to experience. During the burning of the package with our three leaves, three dogs came up to where we were outside. The threes have been strong in my life. Once the ceremony was over, we headed back inside for a buffet lunch. I was hungry and had a little bit of everything. Once again, the food did not disappoint.  Continue reading Peru – Day 7 (5/23/2017)
