is for YOLO (You Only Live Once)
I saw a shirt I liked at the store the other day and I started to have second thoughts about buying it. It was black with pink writing on the front. The material was soft and seemed like it would be really comfortable.
Yet I was stressing about buying it because I knew my husband would make fun of me. Printed on the front of the shirt was YOLO and on the back was printed You Only Live Once.
Since the singer and rapper Drake came out with that song saying his motto is “YOLO”, people have been tattooing it on themselves and yelling it from the mountain tops and I have been so annoyed by the term YOLO.
To me, you only live once means that you only get one life to live so live it to the fullest and don’t be afraid to take a risk once in a while. To try something new to venture out of your comfort zone on a few occasions.
Hey, I might die tomorrow so I will drink and smoke and do some crazy shit today.
What happens when you don’t die tomorrow? Will you have consequences that could ruin this one life?
YOLO does not mean go party, get drunk, do drugs and neglect your responsibilities.
YOLO, should mean taking the time to enjoy the world, enjoy the people around you, to make sure you tell those people you care about that you do care and love them.
Because they may not be here tomorrow.

So after a little more thought
I bought the shirt.
It looks really good on me.
