I realized that I’ve probably missed a lot of experiences in the past – meaningful, enlightening, fun, life-changing, utterly pointless, careless and stupid experiences but experiences nonetheless. And I’ve missed a whole bunch of ’em because I was too scared, lazy or indifferent to try.
This year, I will embrace everything life throws at me, whether it be cake or crap, snowballs or mud. I’ll take them.
That food looks exceptionally strange and foreign and totally inedible… but I’ll try it anyway.
That outdoor activity doesn’t sound like something I’d normally do on an early Saturday morning… but I’ll try it anyway.
Going out with a big group of people doesn’t really interest me anymore… but I’ll try it anyway.
I might or might not be able to sleep for days if I suck it up and watch a horror movie alone… but I’ll try it anyway.
Spending the money I so painstakingly saved up last year on something I didn’t plan spending it on doesn’t seem like a wise decision… but I’ll try it anyway… if there’s a legitimately life-or-death situation going on.
Oh, life. Be kind. I’m going to take it all. But please, be kind.
Here we go, 2014! Woohoo, YOLO.
(I just said that, didn’t I?)
