One Thing in Life That’s Guaranteed

In life, we’re all promised something. We expect to be given something that’s been guaranteed to us. People make those promises all the time, including me and you. We’re not innocent in this whatsoever. Guaranteed promises become reality sometimes, but only sometimes. What many people don’t seem to realize is that in life, there’s only ONE thing that’s guaranteed to all of us. There’s only one thing that will happen to all of us whether even if it happens later in life. That one thing, is death.

Death can come at any age. Death can come at any time, any day, any month, any week, any year. It’s something we can never escape. Death is guaranteed to all of us.

Why do you think people always say “YOLO”? Even though the term’s stupid, it’s true. You only live once, so LIVE! Life doesn’t really guarantee a damn thing if you think about it. When someone promises you something, you won’t think they would go through with that promise right? When something’s guaranteed to you, you would think it will go through right? Wrong. Simply wrong.

It’s pretty scary but at the same time, don’t let it stop you from living the life you want to live. Live every day like it’s your last. You never know when it’ll be your last.

Anything can be guaranteed, but death will always be guaranteed.

Live life. Live NOW!

Still Figuring It Out

Normally I would have my life figured out by now, but I honestly don’t. At the same time, I’m okay with that. It’s weird. Really weird. The weirdest thing about it is that I’m actually worried. Is it okay that I’m still figuring out life at 22 years old? That’s a question I want to ask you guys.

Normally people would have their lives in check by now. I feel like I don’t. I’m still a young man so I believe that I have a lot of time to do so because the older you get, the more time becomes limited. It really sucks too because time goes by VERY FAST! I mean holy shit, we’re already halfway through the year! 2019 will be over before you know it.

I know exactly what I want to do for the rest of my life. I want to travel. I want to see the world. I want to meet new people all over the world. Most importantly, I want to write professionally. As long as I could write and travel, my life will be complete. The problem I have with myself is that I don’t know how I’m gonna get to that point. I know what I want to accomplish, but don’t know how I’m gonna accomplish them. It’s complicated but shouldn’t be too complicated.

I’m a 22 year old young man who’s trying to figure out life. I’m still learning each and every day. It may be a slow process, but I KNOW the payoff will be worth it! Just wait and see.

The Road of Life

Take a good look at the featured image for this blog post. You guys see this specific road? See all the twists and turns? That is what I would label as the Road of Life.

We all know that life has its ups and downs, but it also features twists and turns. One thing will always lead to another. That’s how difficult life can be at times. You turn one corner and things will be fine then suddenly you turn another corner and things start to get funny. It can be very frustrating. It happens over and over again. Time and time again. But that’s how life is.

Now take a look at the bottom of the road. It’s perfectly straight, kind of like a finish line. That’s what I like to call it, the Finish Line. After all the twists and turns you go through, you finally reach the finish line and you’ll turn out to be a better person. Life gives you challenges. You must accept those challenges and complete them. Everything will turn out for the better!

Once you reach that finish line, you’ll feel like a new person. You’ll feel accomplished. You’ll feel like a superhero. You’ll feel great! Twists, turns, back and forth, you’ll go through it all. All that matters is that finish line you cross. Reach it, then throw your fist in the air for celebration! ✊

It Takes Guts to Live

Life can be very hard. So hard that it beats us down at times. That’s just the way life is. So many ups, so many downs. A big roller coaster. Life. People do crazy things every day in order to live their lives to the fullest. Living the quote, “Live like today’s your last, because tomorrow’s never promised.” Not sure if too many people have heard this quote but I’ve heard it a couple of times. If you think about, you’re already doing just that. Living in general, takes guts.

Each year passes. Each day passes. We’re all still here, living. Majority of us living happy lives, majority of us living sad lives. In general, each of us have the guts to live life. You can’t just let life take the best of you whenever things don’t go very well. You have to remind yourself; each day that you’re living, you have a lot of guts. Unfortunately, life can be so bad that many people don’t wanna deal with it anymore. That always makes me sad that people would go down that path. Please, don’t EVER take that path! No matter how hard life is, move forward with it. Show your strength by moving forward with your life. That takes a lot of guts to do, and YOU CAN DO IT!

This was something that came to me a couple days ago. “It takes guts to live, not to die.” As soon as I heard that quote, I instantly had to write about it. It’s so true though. It sure does take guts to live. Sometimes, life can be our enemy. When you come face to face with your enemy, you could either fight it or accept defeat. If you accept defeat without putting up a fight, what does that prove? Nothing. Fight the enemy! Live your life, showcase the guts you have!

Action is Key

People can talk about doing what they want to do all the time. Anyone can talk a big game. Anyone can talk the talk. Words are so easy to dish out because it’s just that, words. You want to know what’s not so easy to dish out? Your actions. Anyone can talk the talk, but who can really walk the walk? Actions speak louder than words. Your words are good, but your actions are more important.

It takes someone with great endurance to talk the talk AND walk the walk. You’ll always have a voice, but sometimes your voice isn’t good enough. You gotta show people that you mean what you say. Through your actions, you must show people that you’re not one to be taken lightly. Through your actions, you’ll be taken more seriously.

Your movements are always going to be invested in. You must take that opportunity to thrive! Talk your big game, then show it! People are always gonna be watching! The key to success is your determination. Your ambitions. Push yourself through your actions in order to get what you want. That makes a better impact than your words.

Your words are inspiring, but your actions are the true inspiration. Your actions will get you to the top of the mountain. Your action is key. Use it to open the door to your future.

Your actions speak 10x LOUDER to words! Instead of promising, start proving. Instead of talking, start acting. Instead of saying, start showing!

Your actions will always be key.

Point of View

What’s your point of view on life? What do you see every time you step out into the open world? Do you see peace? Do you see controversy? These are type of sights most people view in their own eyes as they walk through society everyday. Most people wonder, “Is this what life is suppose to be? Life is suppose to be this bad? This dangerous? Where’s the love? Where’s peace and happiness?” I would love to know myself.

Everyone’s got their own point of views on life. There are definitely people out here who sees happiness. They can go almost anywhere and just be happy, mainly because they can view anything in a positive matter. That’s how a person should live their lives and that’s through positivity. Wherever you go, whatever you do, always view it with positivity. Never view things in a negative way or else you’ll become part of the cons of life. You wouldn’t want that to happen. Anything you view in life, always view it with happiness.

I view life as an ocean. Sometimes, things go smoothly without anything hazards. Sometimes, disasters would occur and a big wave hits. That can be a wave of negativity. Everyone knows the saying of life is like a roller coaster right? Everything goes up then goes down. Same can be said for an ocean as well. When things are swell, the water stays low. When a weather hazard occurs, waves will form. That’s how I view life and will continue to view it that way forever. No one wants to deal with waves all the time, but they do happen for a reason just like how we all deal with bad days at times.

Life can definitely be viewed in many kind of ways. You just have to make sure that everything you view is for the better. Nothing that should keep you down. We all have our point of views on life and it’s okay to have different views on everything. We should all agree on one thing though; everything we view should be for the better. I hope you guys would agree with me on that. Better views equals a better life.

Top 3 Words For Life

Throughout life, we all have a lot of things we go through almost on a daily basis. Whether it’s stuff that’s negative or positive, we always have our mindsets reflect on our daily activities. Here’s something we need to remember though: we always need motivation for anything we go through in life. Not just physical motivation though, motivation in words. What I mean by this is that we need to have certain words in our minds that would help us get through our lives every single day. These are the top 3 words we all need to remember for the rest of our lives.

1. Thankful

No matter what you do in life, you should always feel thankful for everything you go through. Even when you’re feeling down and not feeling good about yourself at all, always feel thankful because one day your life will get better and better as the time goes on. Also be thankful for your peers. Without them, you would feel lost at times. You would feel empty without the comfort of someone. Same thing can be said about your family. Be thankful that they’re around. Without family, you will totally have no one. Always be thankful in life. Positivity will come around when you really need it.

2. Positivity

You can’t go around feeling bad about yourself everyday. That’ll make things more difficult for you to do. Always be positive. Even if you’re having a terrible day, be positive at the end of it. If you’re having a bad at work, that’s okay. Be positive at the end of the day. Spread positivity to those around who and most importantly to those who need it. You know who needs it the most? The entire world. I would just love for everyone to have some positivity in their lives all over the world. The more we have it, the less problems this world will have. I don’t know how that would be accomplished, but with the right amount of people to be on board with it, maybe this world would be a better place after all.

3. Love

Always show love. Show love those you care about and to even those who you don’t know. Most importantly, love yourself. There’s even people out here who need to understand that more than ever. I hate seeing people feel bad for themselves. People who don’t love themselves usually self destruct to the point where there’s no turning back. If you’re one of those people, please stop that. Find a way to love yourself and keep that up. Once you do that, you’ll feel like a whole new person! Love yourself, your peers, your family, and God. Spread love to everyone in your life! The best gift you could ever ask for is receiving love from everyone else in return.
