Well, basically this has been the motto of my life since then. When I was a little kid, I was the most coward girl in the group. I was too obedient and I depended on the bucketful of what ifs. In tagalog, parati ako pinangungunahan ng takot. I always start my imaginative plans with what fear.
I have so many phobias clumped at the back of my mind. I have fear of darkness, heights, ghosts, fear of things that I might not able to do it, fear of standing by my own principle or in short, I have a fear of taking the risk.
But this is me now. This the newer version of myself. Young, wild and free. I am now a strong courageous girl who’s ready to take the risk on what life has showcased to me. I am not afraid of heights anymore. I was able to rappel, I was able to climb trees and even rode a huge roller coaster. I was able to experience roadtrip with my friends on the next few towns and even rode on top of a car.
This is what you call YOLO. You Live Only Once, so we got to do the things while we are capable of doing those and while we are young. However, there are limitations because even the skies have boundaries. We are responsible on our actions. We still need to be mature enough to manage everything in our lives because in the end, it still about us. If we abuse the term, we might end up on corners we don’t want to stay.
Go ahead my friend, don’t be afraid. If you want to be happy, take the risks, take opportunities, fly high and aim high. Everything will be fine.
