I’ve been told this so many fucking times but I’m going to let you in on a little secret… I’m a loony toon. Completely and utterly bat shit fucking crazy. And you know what? I really don’t give a flying fuck what anybody (not you Mom) thinks. I’m going to start telling people when I meet them for the first time that I’m out of my mind. This might serve as a nice ice breaker so they’ll know to completely turn off their brains for the next twenty minutes. I am who I am and whether you hate me or love me I don’t give a fuck. Try that one on for size. I just don’t give a fuck. That’s just how I am. And truthfully I wish more people were like me. I’m outgoing, spontaneous, and I live life to the fullest with no regrets (sometimes just too much, just ask United Airlines about that from my flight Sunday).
Answer me this, how do you feel at the end of your day? Fulfilled? I’ll let you be the judge of that. Too many people worry about other peoples opinions about who they are. And why? For what reason? Can you control someone else’s opinion of you? To a certain extent of course, but more often than not you can’t. So get over it. Who gives a damn what someone thinks about you? Explain to me why that matters.
Look at the end of the day there’s only so much you can control in life. I leave the rest up to God and fate. What will be will be. I can’t control it and I would never recommend trying to. I suggest living life flying by the seat of your pants or whatever that saying is. Go for it. Go big, or go home. Take every day like it’s your last and at the end of your life I guarantee you’ll have no regrets. What it really boils down to folks is why be bogged down in misery? Why deal with useless bullshit from people that don’t care about you? Get over it! Seriously we’re young. Go out every night and have fun. Meet new people, drink too much, laugh too loud, and wake up feeling like shit!
Be spontaneous!! I can not stress that enough. Go on trips, see the world! Use every single last day of your vacation time and enjoy life. Seriously, I mean this world we live on is huge, with so many wonders and treasures that we take for granted because we’ve seen them in a picture or a movie. You don’t wanna be sitting around in your living room making a list of things you’ll never do Stop writing a bucket list and just start actually doing the things you spend so much time writing down that you’re going to do! I made a bucket list once and I planned on attempting to do everything or close to everything on there. And guess what, 6 months later I hadn’t done shit. Figure out something you want to do tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. 4 things. And do them. That’s it. Make them happen.
Listen guys and gals, life is short. You only have so much time on your hands so you might as well make the most of the time you have. I can’t seem to really articulate what I am trying to tell you. but there are going to be times in your life when you’re down and depressed. And every day seems like yet another struggle. I know those feelings because I’ve been there. Sometimes things fucking suck. But you know what? Pick up and go away. Take a week, take a cruise, get on a plane, I don’t give a damn just do something. Get yourself out of your funk and your rut. When you’re lying in your bed and you’re 80 years old and everything hurts from a life well lived you’ll thank me. Well you probably won’t cause I’m most likely crapping out at like 50. But that’s because I’m going to drink my face off, see the world, and leave no stone unturned. And at the end of my days I’m going to close my eyes and thank God for a beautiful life. And that’s all on you folks. You control your destiny. Make your life what you want it to be. Never, ever, settle.
