Please don’t say YOLO

Everyone has dreams of doing something that they know they will most likely never do. Think about it.  There are a lot of good reasons to not fulfill your dreams. My best reason? I have too many dreams and too little time to realize them all.

I bet you there is a whole list of things that you want to do but for which you don’t have the confidence, talent, time or money. Is this cowardly thinking? Perhaps. But please don’t say YOLO.

First of all, that is not even a real word. Second, YOLO has become some lame mantra used when people are in need for some kind of justification for something that doesn’t even deserve an excuse. YOLO is just a 21st century carpe diem without a purpose. I don’t take action today because I know whatever time I have now is going to end. I take action because I know that once today is gone, tomorrow will quickly follow. I’m not going to live selfishly aware of my own mortality. I am going to dare to dream big. I am going to seize the day for a better tomorrow. Carpe diem! ….. But please don’t say YOLO.
