Have you ever played a video game?
Normally you get a few lives, say 3, maybe 10… but at some point, unless you beat the game, you end up on your last life. There’s always this sense of urgency…. I can’t die again, I’m on my last life! Because, as we all know, when you die on your last life, it’s GAME OVER.
That’s the weird thing about being a human, we’re born on our last life.
You may ask yourself, how is that reminder a Quick Me Up? Maybe that sounds more like a quick me down… but the thing is, the better and faster that we realize we only get one chance, the better we can live this one chance.
We Get One Life.
I’m guilty. I let time pass by. I get into a rhythm, into a rut, and I just stay there. Maybe I make small changes or adjustments, but I don’t treat each day like the individual gift it is.
This life is an amazing, unique, powerful GIFT that you were given.
Are you ready to fully enjoy this gift?
This life is meant to be lived fully. The idea isn’t to make it to the end and say, “well at least I got a lot of sleep and was very safe, nothing crazy happened!”….
It reminds me of a great quote:
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!'” – Hunter S. Thompson
We get one ride!
This is it!
What have you always wanted to do? What’s that one thing… that if you didn’t pursue it… you’d get to the end of life and think:
Damn, I can’t believe I never tried that!
Maybe you always wanted to write a book, or run a marathon but still haven’t done it… maybe you want to quit your job to work freelance, even if the money isn’t the same…. maybe you’ve always wanted to travel but still haven’t done it….. whatever the case may be, don’t run out of time waiting for the “perfect moment to start”.
This is just your reminder to the inner you: YOU HAVE ONE CHANCE!
Because a reminder can help you spark a change in mentality, or in the way you approach your day… that’s why this is a Quick Me Up…. because it’s designed to help life you UP! Last life, time’s running out, GO BE YOU!!!
We Get One Life.
