The Worst advice I've ever heard about Life



"You only live once. YOLO!"

I'm not pointing out to the quote here. I mean, I understand that this quotation means to live life to the fullest. But, the thing that I do not like in this sort of advice is how people misunderstand it. I always hear people, like in school, tell this to others as if they're advertising to live life like you gonna die tomorrow, so let's party all night and drink until we can't remember anything. Uh-uh.
You see, "You only live once." tells us to make something out of your comfort zone. Do something beautiful in your life because you are just given one lifetime to do the best, to feel the wheel of life; its ups and downs, to get out and explore the world, the mischief and wonderful creation that the world may offer us. Go out there! Meet new people, serve other people, feel inspired, and feel happy of yourself. When you hear this advice, do not think of it as an opportunity to waste yourself, because when you got to do things that may ruin your whole being that is not the whole point that you are here given birth by your mother. I'm not saying that going to clubs are a no-no, you just have to recognize the true meaning of this quotation.
You see, there's a purpose why we are born in this world. That purpose is different to every people. You got to find what it is. Because that is what guides you on driving your own ship. When you come to a point where you are under a stormy weather, "You only live once." tells us to be strong because this storm will just pass by so do not jump into the sea and drown yourself because you can do it. It tells us to- why not sing a happy song, it seems that you need to have the right attitude amidst this storm to keep you going. 

You only live once. Think and do something that can make your life and the world a better place.

  2. For me "you only live once" is more about to appreciate our live.
    Doing crazy thing because "yolo" like travel around the world or trying to live abroad is acceptable.

    But too much partying is more about wasting your time (IMO).

    Nice post anyway ^^.

  3. It's been interesting to hear people's take on 'yolo' since the term started trending all that time ago, and I completely agree with yours. I think it started off as a really nice way of reminding people to make the most of their lives and experience as much as possible, however it quickly turned into something far less well intended. I have to say, I'm glad the word has pretty much faded out now haha! ;)

  4. Thank you for writing this! YOLO works for some but not for others...we must live life the way WE want. For some people, they are content to enjoy the little things in life and they do not need the YOLO philosophy :)
