The first place I drove when I got my license was the grocery store. I don’t know why, but all of those lined shelves in sections, labels out, helps remove stress. All’s well with the world there. I don’t even have to buy anything. Just wander and feel better. I waited so long for that license. I used to wish the Barbie dream car were my size and drivable. My Barbies were perpetually getting ready for dates they actually never went on. I had five Barbies and a decent stash of outfit choices but no Ken doll. My Mom said it would be inappropriate for Ken to live in the box with all those girls. Still, I knew Ken was coming. His perfectly coiffed plastic hair and smug perma-smile were worth waiting for because when he did arrive he would take Barbie on a…
“Life is short”, “Your life should be exciting”, “You Only Live Once”….
Besides all the overly-used cliches that start to strike less and less each time to our attention, there are several other reasons why you just simply not give a fuck…. and live your life.
First of all, those cliches dont lie… You WILL only live once, And even though one time might be enough if done right, it might also be decades before it strikes you that Oops! 3/4 of your life has gone by and you have done nothing that fills you with joy and makes you feel alive at least 30 constant days in your life. Before you know it you will find yourself looking outside your window reminisicing on wasted youth and all the should have’s and what if’s…

Second, You can only be reckless for so long… I don’t think I’m the only one to feel that days pass in the glimpse of an eye, and vivid moments become shooting stars in our night skies, all of a sudden. Before you know it, you are a “young adult” and you find yourself stuck with “responsibilities” and monthly bases that need to be covered… And the uphill battle towards spontaneity starts…
Let loose!! Live, be young while you STILL ARE!! Live your life inmersing yourself in every stage there is to live. Explore, Travel, Learn, Investigate, Laugh, be silly, be reckless, party, do it all and do it with grace, or don’t do it at all.. After all, if you are planning on having kids the Internet can be a very shameful tool your kids may one day use against you..

Third, YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT’S GOING TO LIVE WITH YOUR REGRETS! Just like your friends do not shed the same tears that come out of your eyes, or feel the heart-breaking pain that sometimes kills you inside, they will not be left with empty spaces of could have’s, unfulfilled dreams or memories… So what saying should they have in your life ?? Haven’t you noticed everyone envies a little the person who feels the most free and actually lives their life???
In the end, you will be the ONLY one left with your unfilled bucket list!
When the pretty starts to fade, so do some facades…
YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF!!
You owe it to yourself to live a life full of passion, full of vivid memories that will make you laugh alone when you are in your 70’s in a rocking chair, (or floating chair with this new tech).. You owe yourself Adventures worthy of bestselling books, love affairs that make you laugh while you sleep and make your skin burn with the glimpse of a smile... You deserve to feel alive!!
You deserve to explore the world and travel roads unknowns, even if sometimes freeing your soul feels like you’re loosing yourself. You will always find you way home.
Si simplemente supieras cuanto te extrano,
Cuando significas para mi;
Si solamente supieras
Si entendieras que ya mis días te necesitan para ser normales,
Que sin tus labios los mios ya no tienen lugar.
Si entendieras cuanto te quiero y como me elevo cuando tus labios mi cuello llegan a rozar.
Si algún dia pudieras ver en mi corazón
Te sorprenderías al ver que parte tan grande de el te doy.
Tanta ilusión, tanta ilusión
Tanto desamor, tanto amor
