Embrace Life

Embrace it

My partner was mucking around on Facebook yesterday, and a friend of his had posted the question:

In just two words, what would be the advice you would give your younger self?

His answer – Embrace life.

From all that he has told me, I always thought he had seized every opportunity life had thrown his way. I thought he had lived a full and exciting life, one with adventure and great memories.

I questioned him what he meant by ‘Embrace life’. He simply answered with,

“No matter what, I could have done more. I could have seen more, gone to more places, talked to more people, learnt more things. I could have just embraced it all, without questioning if I had the time or the money or the skills. I just should have done more when I was younger.”

And I think everyone can say that. We can all look back at some point in our lives and say, “I should have taken that chance.”

It really struck a chord with me, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

Something so simple has really changed my attitude about what I’m currently doing with my life, and how I approach life in general. I don’t want to sit on the sidelines and watch life happen around me – I want to go out, take it by the horns, and let it throw me around until I am so immersed in it that there is no way to stop it.

Why wait and see, when you can just go and do?

This is so true.
I find it quite ironic though that if you ask most adults/your parents what they would redo if they could, I've found the majority say their childhood/school years. So they could work harder, get better grades and have a better start in life when they started the work force.

These days parents try and get their children to experience all the things they never got the chance too do, whether it be in sport, academics or any out of school hobbies. However these days children seem more interested in iphones, tv, playstations etc... and we don't seem to be embracing life right now either. Lets just hope we don't end up regretting it.
