Okay, as it is, it’s coming straight out of my mouth.

I’m going to say those words that we all fear saying—and like it or not, without me sounding so mean and harsh about it—but I’m going to be real and tell it how it is: we are all going to die!

Fear it or not. It’s the truth, and this is what life is about—you and I are simply born to die!

Well, now that we all know this, this is the time which is always going to be in the present moment; it’s time to live it up! That’s right—live before we die. Come on, what are we waiting for? Are we waiting to die? Time is now.

I would like to share some key points to living it up before the D-Day, because let’s face the truth, we have no idea when this may be.

Say “f*ck you” to fear

It’s time for all of us to tell fear exactly where to go. Fear is what is holding all of us back to living it up; fear is the one thing we do not want to hang on to as this can make us feel stuck, confused, scared, anxious, untrustworthy toward ourselves and others, and it can make us hold onto resentments—which eventually make us feel trapped.

Why would we want to live our life feeling this way? Fear only f*cks with all our heads, it wants to control us, and eventually, after a few rounds of alcoholic beverages or being in a negative and low energy frequency state of mind, it will control us; it will make our egoistic state of mind expand and turn us into robotic conditioned beings, and it will make us do things that we don’t really want to do.

It will place us as a puppet on a string and take us on many pointless adventures. It becomes thrilled when it sees us hurting and sad; it thrives on this. You got to fight away your fears right this moment as you are reading this; this will make your own fear become fearful. Take back control of your life. You got this.

Love yourself and love everyone

I can’t express this enough. Honestly, you are a miracle being. This is something to be grateful for. Look at your miraculous body and think about how it functions. We are a walking miracle; we must learn to love this body before it goes and turns into dust. It doesn’t matter who we are, what we have, or what we look like, we must learn to appreciate ourselves no matter what, because we are all different and it’s the imperfections in all of us that make us beautiful. We should look at ourselves in the mirror and smile, and be delighted that we are breathing.

And just like you are a miracle, so are other beings. So in addition to loving yourself, learn to love others around you just the same as well. It’s like that old adage: do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Love makes the world go around; love is pure energy, and you are also energy—so the more we can love, allow ourselves to be loved, and spread the love, the more miracles will occur in our lives because, remember, miracles emanate from love. If we can understand the fact that love is a verb, we can live the most fulfilling life.


Well, what can I say? This topic is the biggest topic to setting one’s self free. I totally get it—we have all been in a situation when we hold onto anger or resentment toward certain people throughout our life. But honestly, why? Why would we want to keep holding onto things when the only person we’re hurting deeply is ourselves?

I understand we have all been through much hurt and pain, but we must stop. We should just stop trapping ourselves. We must free ourselves from any situation we have been in that’s holding us down—free ourselves and get rid of all that weight upon our shoulders.

We don’t have to socialize with people we don’t feel like we want to, and for our own self, we must learn to accept and acknowledge what happened with our own situation, grab hold of it, and then allow it to blow it away—just like placing a message in a bottle and letting it free into the ocean.

We all must strive toward forgiving ourselves and others. Once we let go, we will feel much freer, and be able to carry on and live a much lighter and happier life. Remember to be the better person no matter what; our compassion will eventually reflect on others around us. This is the law of the universe: do good, and goodwill come back to you! Forgive someone today, and see how it makes you feel.

It’s that simple. These three key points will open your heart and mind to many mind-boggling adventures. Life is short and, for many, it can be shorter—enjoy, and go for all your dreams. You are limitless and you can do anything you wish. Accept things as they are and be grateful for how it is today. Smile, and be happy, before you die.
