Live Your Life


Work is important?  Yes.  School is crucial?  Absolutely.  Down time?  It’s necessary.  Trust me, you need to socialize.  It has even been scientifically proven that time with the people you love can make you feel better, so why ignore that?  We’re humans, so we naturally like to be around other people.  Definitely do the things that you need to get done like getting an education and making a living, but don’t neglect your social life in the process.

Take time to share precious moments with your family.  Take a weekend to get away with your best friends.  Take a night for just you and that special person.  Do anything you want as long as you’re not isolating yourself off and actually being a breathing human being.  As a person who is well-acquainted with the word busy, I can assure you that these social gatherings are a must and you won’t regret them.  If anything, you’ll only be planning more.  It’s not impossible if you make it happen, so just live already.

You only live once and you won’t be young forever so take advantage of it while you can.  Go out and have fun.  Live your life now before you have no life to live.
