Once in A Lifetime

They say we only live once. This is it. One shot. That’s a lot of pressure to do everything right. How much thought should we really put into this concept? Should we spend more time thinking about our actions, and the consequences that follow? The more time we think about everything we do, the more time we waste. The more time we waste, the more time we lose. The more time we lose, the closer we get to the end. Then we look back and say “what if I did something else instead?” It’s enough to drive us out of our minds and we certainly don’t have time for that. Some people don’t make decisions and leave it up to God, Allah, Buddah, Mother Earth, Ashanti, or a million other deities in the pantheon.

However, we all agree that when we are on our death-bed we don’t want to look back with regret. As I get older, I realize that you have to just let some things happen the way they happen. The more I try to control the universe, the more things don’t go my way. Then I get anxious over the result.

It’s true, we have one life, that we remember, but I would rather live it than worry about a better way to live it.

I find that as I get older and look back at how my life has gone so far, I am satisfied for the most part. Sure, things happened that I wish didn’t, but I learned something from those times as well as the good times. And everything I have ever done has led me to where I am now. The present.

The present is a good place to be. The present happens only once in a lifetime, so make the most of it.

  3. Agree, agree, agree! And I’d never leave my life up to Lil Wayne. I think I’d really regret stuff then. 🙂
