One Life, One Chance

“Do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.” Those were the words spoken by Eminem in one of his most popular songs, Lose Yourself.

One life and one opportunity to be whatever you want to be. Each person is born with a blank page and the ability to write whatever they want on this page.

For some, they could take the page and write an award-winning novel. While others could take that same page and turn it into a paper airplane.

You can do whatever you want to do with your personal page. Life is whatever you want it to be, and you are the author of the story that you want to write.

What is the meaning of life. Sure, the word life is the dictionary with a definite meaning, but life is something that really can’t be defined. Life is the most cherished thing that you have and is something that many people take for granted every day. Life might not always be beautiful, but it is up to you to define your meaning of what life is. Some people sit back and wait for things to go their way. They have dreams but don’t have the willpower or the motivation to go out and carry out things that they want to do. Instead of sitting back and waiting, go out and make strides to reach those dreams. Sitting back and waiting is only going to delay you from reaching your goals.

Take a chance, reach for the stars.

Be lucky for the things you have and don’t live a life with any regrets. Take your shot and if you miss just take another. Just remember that you miss 100% of the shots that you never take. Don’t take life for granted and don’t dwell on the negative things that you go through. Just try to live life the way you want and don’t be influenced by anyone else.

    1. It’s so true. Sometimes people think that have it worse than they really do. There are people who always have it worse than you do.

  2. Thanks, Vinnie. Sometimes we need a reminder to reach for the stars instead if just letting ourselves settle for just getting by. Life is hard and sometimes it takes us too far down and we forget that there’s more out there.

    1. Yes! No one should ever settle for something that they are not happy with. That is why people usually get upset with their lives. If you are upset about something go and find something that will make you happy!

  3. Thank you. I needed that post. I needed to read it to not sit here and have pity with myself because my life didn’t go the way I wanted it to. You definitely are right about this post and I wish I could write down the words in my head as good as you do/did. Thanks for sharing :)
