Today is my 21st birthday. And a realisation has occurred to me. Whilst some may consider your twenties as your prime youth, my days and years are already slipping away from me.
Stop and ponder for a moment. As every second goes by, you’re a little bit closer to death and the end of the life cycle. Like a timer is ticking off minute by minute. Wake up, are you here?
What gifts are you resisting giving? What do you want to say, but are you not saying? What do you want to achieve, but you’re not working on it because of lack of money or time or other obligations?
I call bullshit on it all, for you are already dying.
Inside you is a gift, that wants to come into the world. If you’re still young, the time is NOT now to go on defence. The time is NOT now to save money (unless it’s going to get you rich). The time is NOT now to play safe..
The time now is to be risky, to go all in, to work your arse off and make your dreams come true. The time is now to focus on being great. Because as every second goes by you’re a little bit closer to death.
The time is now to invest in yourself in whatever way possible.
There is no time to waste on bitching, moaning, contemplating or living in the past. About who did you wrong. About who didn’t text you back. About what didn’t work out for you. That is gone.
All that matters is the creativity and bringing your goals, talents and dreams into fruition.
Go make it happen, and stop playing defence because we all die in the end.
