You Don’t Get to Decide When You Die – Live Accordingly

These are some rough sketches that my dad did for me. I think he’s an incredibly talented artist who’s creativity has been oppressed by other responsibilities. I hope to incorporate his artwork into this blog and eventually offer prints and original paintings for sale to help keep you motivated through your hardships. Whether it’s making it through the day, growing a business, getting out of debt, or creating the life that you have always wanted. Or a combination of a bunch of things.

We waste a lot of time. Doing something tomorrow or one day turns into doing it never. We think we have a lot of time and that we’ll live for many more years but the truth is, we don’t really know. We don’t know when we’ll die. Part of what makes life exciting is not knowing the answer to that question. But it also makes us take a lot of things for granted. We don’t really live as if we’re dying.

But we are. We die a little more each day until our time is up. Don’t be afraid to live the life you’ve always wanted to live until its too late. Life is for living, not for working. There’s more to life than spending most of your life working in a building being surrounded by people that you probably didn’t choose to be around. You should spend more time with friends and family and not your annoying co-workers who don’t add value to your life.

This quote resonates with me particularly well because I totally agree. This is the lifestyle that I’m searching and yearning for. It’s why my priorities are what they are.  It’s the reason for this blog.
