There is a great quote at about 1:36 in this video. It goes “As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely and love like you’ve never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest. Don’t be afraid to take chance or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.”
You don’t have to agree with everything in this quote to understand what is being said. And you don’t have to practice Parkour or skateboard across the city to live life to the fullest. (Thank God!) We all have our own ways of having fun and enjoying life, be it spending time with your family, reading a good book or climbing a mountain.
The point is and I’ll quote these kids again…”Do what you love, not what you think you’re supposed to do.” Nice reminder. Thanks next generation!
