A lot of us have never experienced what it is like to have, let’s say a doctor, tell us that our days are numbered. That we only have a certain amount of time left to live our lives. This makes me think however, that technically and obviously we all have an expiry date. We just have no idea when it is. So why not do the things we are passionate about with the people we love?!
I was pleasantly surprised when I happened to see this t-shirt in a store the other week. Bright yellow in color with the acronym of YOLO. Curiosity lead me to giggle while reading the small print, ‘You Only Live Once’. I thought to myself ‘Brilliant! I have to take a picture of this to share with everyone.’ As I continued to smile, it reminded me that everyone’s story has a beginning and will eventually have an end. The really cool thing about all this though, is that many of our stories are intertwined. I love doing little things for the people around me and yesterday I was happy to buy waters for the ladies who so diligently cleaned the very busy girls washroom at the Calgary Stampede. As mentioned a few blogs ago ‘Why Not?!’ be spontaneous, considerate and appreciative. We only have one life to live right?
So I ask you now whether you live your life knowing that it will be the only one you have!
